Accommodating Students Who Have Physical Disabilities: A Resource Guide for Massachusetts Community Colleges.
Foster, June C.; Kapisovsky, Peggy
Intended for Massachusetts community college personnel, the document presents suggestions and consideration for providing services to handicapped students. Based on questionnaires from approximately 200 key college personnel, the guide emphasizes eight issues (topics are in parentheses): the student population to be served (blind, partially-sighted, deaf, partially-hearing, epileptic, and students with other physical disabilities); program management (coordination, programs for deaf students, and sources of funding); architectural accommodation (rules and regulations of the Architectural Barriers Board and plans for architectural accessibility); admissions (the screening process and the admissions interview as a planning tool); counseling and advisement (attitudes toward physically disabled individuals, responsibilities of the counselor, factors to consider when counseling the hearing impaired student, and psychometric test); instructional services (support services, procedures for instruction and testing, curriculum materials, aids and equipment, and remedial instruction); and job placement (interagency coordination, job adaptation, resources to facilitate job placement, and job development). Each chapter is followed by a resource section which gives information for contacting persons and/or agencies and for obtaining publications applicable to the needs of personnel. (SB)
