McCarthy, Deborah
About Campus, v12 n5 p10-16 Nov-Dec 2007
Prior to entering college, most students with disabilities are taught to rely on parents, teachers, doctors, and others to arrange for educational accommodations. In college, the job is theirs. As such, it is imperative that they learn self-advocacy prior to entering college. In this article, the author discusses how disability educators can help students with disabilities manage the difficult transition to college by teaching them self-advocacy. (Contains 6 notes.)
