Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v48 n3 p306-319 Sep 2013
A survey was administered to assess attitudes of students living on a college campus that offered an inclusive postsecondary education program for individuals with intellectual disability. Responses were received from 572 students. The survey assessed attitudes toward the postsecondary education program, the program's participants, inclusion, and the impact of the program and its participants on college life and learning in courses. A number of questions asked about current or past experiences with people with intellectual disability and other personal factors. Major findings indicated a large majority of the respondents felt the program was beneficial to the participants and to typical college students. Further analysis found that select variables were related to more positive attitudes.
