Strategies for Advising Disabled Students for Postsecondary Education. [Update.]
Hartman, Rhona C.; Baker, Bonnie
This fact sheet suggests several strategies for counseling students with disabilities who are considering postsecondary education opportunities. It was designed to assist those who advise or counsel students with disabilities in high school, community and junior colleges, career training schools, vocational technical schools, 4-year colleges, universities, and graduate programs. Advisors and counselors are urged to: (1) encourage students to assess interests, aptitude, and achievement; (2) provide nonrestrictive career counseling; (3) encourage students to base decision making about postsecondary education and training on a variety of criteria; and (4) assure access to the counseling environment. Selected resources are described that may help in implementing the strategies discussed. These resources include vocational rehabilitation services, Supplemental Security Income, the Social Security Disability Insurance program, the Association on Handicapped Student Services in Postsecondary Education, and the HEATH Resource Center.
