Orientation Menu for New Directors

 

The orientation menu is an interactive tool for new directors to use as they navigate the system. The menu includes resources and activities indentified by AIDD and AUCD as being helpful when trying to comply with the AIDD requirements, leverage funds, and build positive relationships within the university. The purpose of the promising practices column is to allow new directors to customize their menu by inserting specific UCEDD programs who the new directors identify with and would like more information from.

Download a copy of the Orientation Menu for New Directors here [, 174KB].
