Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Transition-age youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities experience key educational disparities when compared to peers without disabilities due to stigma regarding their abilities, a lack of opportunities, and a lack of adequate accommodations in higher education. This session presents survey data gathered to inform development of a postsecondary IHE program on a university campus and to define the role of OT in IHE.
