The Disabled College Freshman.
President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, Washington, DC.
The booklet reports results of a survey of college freshmen regarding their disabilities. Data compares responses of handicapped students with responses of all 1978 college freshmen participating in the survey. Data is divided into six areas: age, preparation for college, admissions experience, funding sources, academic aspirations, and career aspirations. Among findings are that a higher percentage of handicapped students indicated an expectation for remedial work; handicapped freshmen were more interested in the sciences, but less interested in business and education than the national norm; and a lower percentage of handicapped freshmen indicated that they had completed a college preparatory program.
