Florida Community Colleges: Resource Guide to Programs and Services for Students with Disabilities. First Edition.
This resource guide was developed to provide information about programs and services for students with disabilities at Florida's community colleges. Each of the 28 community colleges has a two-page section, outlining: highlights of the institution; admission procedures; available publications; college statistics; services provided for specific disability categories (visual impairments, physical impairments, hearing impairments, specific learning disabilities, speech impairments, and other impairments); and important addresses and telephone numbers. Summaries of federal and state laws are provided, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, as well as state regulations on admission and graduation requirements and on the College Level Academic Skills Test. The final section of the guide offers a brief summary of four support agencies that assist students with disabilities as they pursue their academic goals. (JDD)
