This project was launched in January 2008 by generous grants from The Boeing Company, Adobe Systems Incorporated, the Washington State Division of Developmental Disabilities, and with special thanks to Wikispaces. Wikispaces are very interactive sites that allow people to edit pages, participate in discussions, and set notifications. For a complete tutorial on how to use Wikispaces, please go to the green icon in the upper right of this page. If you would like to start or participate in a discussion for any page, please click on the "Discussion" tab in the red bar above this section. You can also set a notification to be sent to you anytime someone posts a message to this page by clicking on the "Notify Me" tab.
