Student Affairs Professionals Supporting Students with Disabilities: A Grounded Theory Model
Kimball, Ezekiel; Vaccaro, Annemarie; Vargas, Nadia
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n2 p175-189 2016
In an action-based grounded theory project, the authors collected data from 31 student affairs professionals. During seven focus groups, practitioners described feeling unknowledgeable about disability law, accommodations, and diagnoses. However, they drew upon their core values and transferrable skills to support individual students. Participants wanted to move beyond "small wins" with individual students to campus-wide inclusion. To achieve this goal, they engaged in self-directed learning, collaboration, and proactive strategies. An emergent model is presented.
