Postsecondary Students with Disabilities: Enrollment, Services, and Persistence. Stats in Brief. NCES 2000-092
Hurst, David, Ed.; Smerdon, Becky, Ed.
National Center for Education Statistics
How do the postsecondary enrollment and attainment patterns of students with disabilities compare to students without disabilities? What types of accommodations do institutions provide students with disabilities? These are among the important questions raised by legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). To address these questions, it is useful to examine information provided by both students and institutions on students with disabilities in postsecondary institutions and the types of services institutions provide. Because a number of different surveys are mentioned in this Stats in Brief, it is important to note the particular population that was sampled and the year in which the survey was administered. This Stats in Brief reports the results of several National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) surveys that have collected information on students with disabilities. Estimates may depend on the timing of the survey relative to implementation of legislation such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
