Student Support Services for Post-Secondary Students with Visual Disabilities
Moh, Chiou
Educational Research and Reviews, v7 n22 p483-486 Aug 2012
Increasingly, students with visual disabilities are pursuing higher education. The students need to face the challenges and difficulties of disorganized services and technology to be independent learners. Institutions should provide the support services to meet the requirements of the students. Such students in the United States expressed their general satisfaction with the accommodations they received, but questioned the level and types of support services. This paper, which reviews the literature regarding the challenges post-secondary students faced with student support services the institutions provided, discusses selection of an appropriate college, online learners with visual disabilities, gaining access to textbooks and student services based on universal design (UD).
