Debra Hart, MS

This presentation will focus on key aspects of a national movement that is creating greater access to higher education for students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Common design features will be discussed, including equity access for all students, guided academic pathways, enhanced student support, and career connections as well as elements of the Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008 and student outcomes (e.g., employment and overall life satisfaction) during and after going to college. Numerous resources offered through Think College, a national initiative dedicated to developing, expanding, and improving inclusive higher education options for students with intellectual disability, will be highlighted.
