Guests from the University of South Africa (UNISA) recently visited the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for a two-day tour and information session about the Center and the services it provides. Drs. Siva Moodley, Nareadi Phasha, and Francina Mahlo visited the Kennedy Center to develop the university's strengths of inclusion and special education, which is one of the national priorities of South Africa. In addition, they wish to develop a Centre for Excellence in Disabilities on their campus. The visitors learned about the history of the VKC as well as heard presentations about employment, special education, TRIAD, Next Steps at Vanderbilt, the Reading and Learning Assessment Clinics, and Tennessee Disability Pathfinder from faculty and staff. They also toured the Center and Susan Gray School and dined on campus.
