Kernohan, Lori
College Quarterly, v11 n2 p1-19 Spr 2008
The pilot research project reported on here was conducted between October 2005 and March 2006 on one campus of one of Ontario's 24 colleges. The college is located in an urban centre in southern Ontario. The main focus of this pilot study was the exploration of issues of accessibility and accommodation for students with disabilities as they engage in formal studies at the post-secondary level. The researcher has herself experienced education as a sightless student throughout her life. The overall objective of this pilot study was to explore the methodology and procedures used in this study in preparation for a full exploratory and evaluative research study planned at another post-secondary institution.
