Access to Higher Education in Ghana: Examining Experiences through the Lens of Students with Mobility Disabilities
Braun, Alisha M. B.; Naami, Augustina
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v68 n1 p95-115 2021
This article examines the experiences of students with mobility disabilities accessing higher education institutions in the Accra metropolis of Ghana. To capture the accessibility issues that people with disabilities encounter in their daily lives as postsecondary students first hand, this study used PhotoVoice methodology, which uses a combination of photographs and corresponding narrations. Themes identified in the photographs and narrations highlight the emotional and academic impact of participant encounters with an inaccessible postsecondary environment. Implications for policy and practice are discussed.
