Federally Funded Programs for Disabled Students: Models for Postsecondary Campuses. A Summary of Regional Education Programs, 1975-80.
Anderson, William R.; And Others
A summary of the original 14 federally funded Regional Education Programs, which served as models of ways in which postsecondary campuses can provide services to disabled students, is presented, along with recommendations for an effective program, annotated bibliographies, and four fact sheets designed to answer specific questions about handicapped people in colleges and universities. The program summaries address the program goal, institutional setting and background, administrative location and staffing of the program, program objectives, and students served. Stipulated programs for deaf students were undertaken at California State University at Northridge, Saint Paul Technical Institute, Seattle Central Community College, and Delgado Community College (New Orleans, Louisiana). Additional programs were: Queensborough Community College (Bayside, New York) program for homebound students; San Diego Mesa College program for learning disabled students; Metropolitan State College (Denver, Colorado) program for developmentally disabled adults; Western Oregon State College program for deaf students in education; Georgia State University social work courses for blind students; Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, career development and placement services for disabled students; State University of New York, Buffalo, comprehensive support services for disabled students; Wright State University (Dayton, Ohio) comprehensive support services for disabled students; and the American Council on Education national clearinghouse on campus support services for disabled students in postsecondary education.
