Barnett, Lynn, Ed.
In 1992, survey data were gathered from 619 public and private community, technical, and junior college disability support service (DSS) personnel regarding DSS services and accommodations in those institutions during the 1991-92 academic year. Designed as a resource for administrators, counselors, students, parents, and policymakers, this report consists of a detailed state-by-state directory providing data on each of the 619 colleges responding to the survey. For each institution, 1991-92 data are provided on: (1) institution location and contact person; (2) total enrollment and DSS enrollment; (3) DSS graduates receiving associate degrees and certificates; (4) numbers of students registered in each of the DSS categories of visual impairment or blindness, deafness/hard of hearing, orthopedic/mobility disorders, speech/language disorders, learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, emotional/behavior disorders, head injuries, and chronic illness and other disabilities; (5) available support services and accommodations; special program features; and outcomes. The remaining sections of the report include a detailed table listing support services and accommodations by state; an index listing special DSS program features (e.g., assessment, and career counseling) and the institutions providing them; and an institutional index. Appendixes provide information on the Americans with Disability Act; list exemplary program award recipients; and review organizational resources. The survey instrument and a summary of the survey findings are included. (PAA)
