The Southeast ADA Center Will Broadcast the "ADA Live!" Show: Episode 29: Supported and Inclusive Education for Students with Intellectual Disabilities
January 28, 2016
Wednesday – February 3, 2016
1:00 PM – 1:30 PM (Eastern)
Many young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) are leaving high school and considering post-secondary education programs. Until recently, there were not many opportunities for students with ID to have access to post-secondary education. What began through the efforts of a few individuals and institutes of higher education has developed into a movement of many who share the belief that all students should have access to post-secondary education opportunities that lead to employment and independent living opportunities.
This episode is a continuation of our series on Post-Secondary Education for Students with Intellectual Disabilities. In this episode we will discuss the definition of inclusion, the stimulus behind the spark of inclusion in higher education, post-secondary education Comprehensive Transition Programs, accommodations in Comprehensive Transition Programs, support for students with intellectual disabilities in higher education, and anticipated outcomes for students with disabilities attending post-secondary education.
