Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

College students with disabilities who have average or above-average intellectual abilities do not have the same rate of graduation as their peers. OT has a unique skill set to support students with disabilities in higher education, however, few OTs are employed by universities. The GOALS2 program studied the effect of expanding the offerings of the disability office with OT services on the academic successes of students with disabilities.
