Services for Students with Disabilities in California Public Higher Education. A Report to the Legislature in Response to Supplemental Language in the 1982-83 Budget Act.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The development and current status of state-supported educational programs serving disabled students in California public colleges and universities are briefly reviewed, and current state policy and recommendations for future policy are addressed. While programs at all three public segments are considered, the California Community Colleges are covered separately because of the unique nature of their funding, program design, and variety of students. After presenting background information on the growth and current status of programs serving disabled students, the following issues affecting all three segments are considered: the groups to be served, services to be provided, funding of the services, evaluation of programs, and the effect of the transfer of services from the Department of Rehabilitation. Issues related to the community colleges include: community college programs for disabled students, special classes, the operation and funding of special classes, and the delivery of educational services to adults with developmental disabilities. Appendices include a list of 15 support services, a proposed budget projection, information on categories and subcategories of disabilities, and a 1979 report of the statewide task force on services to disabled students.
