Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

College students with disabilities have poorer retention and graduation rates than their peers without disabilities. The academic success of college students with disabilities can be enhanced by the provision of specialized academic supports. A coaching intervention provided by OTs allowed college students with disabilities to meet 66% of their self-identified academic goals. The students clearly articulated the benefits of this intervention to their success.
