An Analysis of Disability, Academic Performance, and Seeking Support in One University Setting
Dong, Shengli; Lucas, Margaretha S.
Career Development and Transition for Exceptional Individuals, v39 n1 p47-56 Feb 2016
This study focused on the academic performance and use of disability support services (DSS) of students with different types of disabilities who attend a postsecondary education institution. Findings show different patterns of academic success over four semesters as well as different patterns of DSS usage. Students who requested support from DSS were more likely to demonstrate improved academic performance, but relatively few students sought such support. The authors discussed the implications for professionals in working with this population.
