Veterans with Disabilities in Postsecondary Education
Madaus, Joseph W.; Miller, Wayne K., II; Vance, Mary Lee
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v22 n1 p10-17 2009
Over the past 60 years, veterans with disabilities have been a catalyst in the development of services for students with disabilities in higher education. Current converging factors, including anticipated large numbers of veterans with disabilities enrolling in postsecondary education, Office for Civil Rights directives, and the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008 (ADAAA) may once again place veterans in the center of evolution in Disability Services (DS). This article presents a brief history of veterans with disabilities in postsecondary education as well as an overview of key legislation and government initiatives that have shaped, and continue to shape postsecondary DS.
