The Process: Development of the Revised AHEAD Program Standards and Performance Indicators
Dukes, Lyman, III
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v19 n1 p5-15 Sum 2006
In 1999, "AHEAD" formally approved its first set of Program Standards. The Standards spelled out the services considered essential for ensuring equal access to education for students with disabilities. In addition, the Standards were intended to establish the parameters of what practitioners do as well as assert the credibility and uniqueness of the Office For Students With Disabilities (Jarrow, 1997). The Standard's utility diminished due to a number of factors, but especially the changing nature of disability services. Thus, a survey consisting of 30 service components and 147 performance indicators was completed by a group of postsecondary disability services experts to get a current look at today's services. This survey led to the updated "AHEAD" Program Standards and Performance Indicators, which were formally approved in November 2004. (Contains 2 tables.)
