Community Colleges and Students with Disabilities: A Directory of Services and Programs.
Bieber, Ted; And Others
In February 1987, a questionnaire was mailed to all member institutions of the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, requesting information on services provided for students with disabilities. The survey investigated services for a wide range of disability categories, including emotionally disturbed, hearing impaired, learning disabled, mentally retarded, orthopedically handicapped, other health impaired, and visually impaired. Over 650 colleges responded to the survey, identifying an extensive range of services, including counseling, on- and/or off-campus housing, test modifications, expressive and acceptive interpreters, learning centers and learning disabled services, notetakers, career/job placement, resource teachers, special new student orientations, registration assistance, readers and scribes, tutors, transportation, and taped texts. The survey report lists each responding college, the name and telephone number of a contact person for additional information, a coded list of the disability categories served, and a coded list of specific programs, support services, and agreements with government or private agencies. An index to colleges by disability category served and the survey instrument are included. (AYC)
