State University System of Florida: Resource Guide to Programs and Services for Students with Disabilities. Second Edition.
This guide was developed to provide information about the programs and services of the State University System of Florida to potential students with disabilities. The guide begins with descriptions of the six categories of disabling conditions recognized by the system (visual impairments; physical impairments; hearing impairment; specific learning disabilities; speech impairment; and other impairments--cardiovascular and circulatory, mental, psychoneurotic, or personality disorders, blood serum disorders, respiratory disorders, diabetes and epilepsy), summaries of federal and state laws, and information about funding for auxiliary learning aids. Each of the nine state universities is then described in a two-page section outlining its programs and services. These sections include highlights of the institution, admission procedures, available publications, university statistics, services provided to individuals with specific disabilities by category, and addresses of relevant university departments and student organizations. The guide concludes with descriptions of scholarships and supporting agencies available to assist students with disabilities. (JDD)
