Professional and Legal Challenges of Teaching Students with Disabilities in Postsecondary Education
Kibria, Gholam
College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v1 n1 p57-62 2005
With the passage of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), students with disabilities have legal supports for "reasonable accommodation" with respect to physical accessibility, programs, and services. As a result, the number of students with disabilities who are enrolling at the postsecondary level has increased dramatically. The paper focuses on the challenges that faculty and administration have to face in meeting the needs of students with disabilities in postsecondary education and the reasonable accommodations that they could adapt to make education more meaningful to students with disabilities.
