Considering Different Perspectives of Change.
Kolvitz, Marcia, Ed.
These four conference papers from the Biennial Conference on Postsecondary Education for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing focus on different perspectives of change. The first paper, "The Impact of the Current Political Climate upon Legislation for Persons with Disabilities" (Robert Stodden), shares the experiences of a Senatorial staffer on the Senate Subcommittee on Disability Policy. How things work in Washington, the political climate of the Republican controlled Congress, and the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are addressed. The second paper, "The Challenge of Change: Bringing the Federal Perspective to the Local Level" (Bobbie Beth Scoggins and others), discusses changing trends in providing services to individuals with deafness from the perspectives of consumers, postsecondary student service providers, and institutions, and changes occurring at the state and federal level. In the third paper, "Understanding Each Other" (Steve Larew), the president of ADARA describes his personal experiences and discusses the different populations of people with hearing loss. The final paper, "The Impact of Change on Student Services" (Jane Jarrow), addresses some of the danger signs on the horizon for students with disabilities in higher education, specifically for students with deafness and who are hard of hearing.
