Serving Wounded Warriors: Current Practices in Postsecondary Education
Vance, Mary Lee; Miller, Wayne K., II
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v22 n1 p18-35 2009
From September to October 2009 the Association on Higher Education and Disabilities (AHEAD) invited anonymous voluntary responses from 2,500 members and affiliates to complete a 29-question online survey on current practices in postsecondary education for serving veterans with disabilities (wounded warriors). Two hundred and thirty seven complete surveys were received. Survey results provide the numbers and types of disabilities served and type of accommodations provided to wounded warriors. Respondents indicated that identifying an institution point person to assist with the reintegration of veterans from military to classroom was a priority for improving services. (Contains 3 tables.)
