PANDA’s disability website has a new look! Check it out at mn.abedisabilities.org.

The website has a new “FORMS” link at the top of the page. It provides easy access to forms, including PANDA’s Supplemental Disability Registration Form. Add a yes/no question to your program registration form. If the student answers yes, complete the Disability Registration form to gather more information about your student during the intake process. This form is available in English and Spanish. View the form >>
