Addressing disability not as a form of student impairment-as it is typically perceived at the postsecondary level-but rather as an important dimension of student diversity and identity, this book explores how disability can be more effectively incorporated into college environments/5. The purpose of the Disabled Students in Higher Education is to improve educational opportunities for the disabled. The group aims to give a voice for the disabled where there was none before. Our goal is to organize, educate, and change the ways the disabled are perceived in the University environment.

There are many books available through AHEAD. The topics available range from Emergency Procedures to Learning Disabilities in Higher Education, Mathematics and Disabilities and much more. Books available through AHEAD include the following: The Essential Six, Volume One; From Legal Principal to Informed Practice; Exam Accommodations Reference Author: Wendy Taormina-Weiss. This book is written for all practitioners in higher education today - many of whom may not have previous experience of working with disabled students, but now wish to develop a better understanding of the issues involved and of how they can improve their own practice.

General Information. The Americans with Disabilities Act of (ADA), patterned after Section , also protects qualified persons with disabilities from discrimination in many areas of postsecondary education including admission, academics and r, the ADA applies to all postsecondary educational programs even if such programs do not receive federal financial assistance.   But disabled students continue to report considerable stigma, as well as variations in the availability and usefulness of adjustments. Having more disabled staff could have profound effects on the curriculum and cultures of universities, making accessibility the norm, and thereby reducing the need for individualised adjustments.
