McClanahan, Ruby F.; Hastings, Chester R.
McLennan Community College is presently involved in a three-phase project designed to develop and implement a coordinated program of supportive services that will enable physically and sensorially limited adults to pursue occupationally oriented training-educational programs. This report of Phase I (January-June 1975) presents the following: (1) descriptions of exemplary programs of individualized supportive services for the physically and sensorially handicapped at five community colleges; (2) the results of a survey sent to 120 post-secondary institutions in Texas to gain an overview of the number of handicapped students enrolled in those institutions and the kinds of supportive services provided for them; (3) a list of the supportive services available from local agencies; (4) a discussion of viable procedures to be followed in identifying and recruiting potential students; (5) a consideration of the psychological and physical/architectural barriers on campus; and (6) descriptions of the kinds of supportive services needed.
