Description

Students with complex needs—intellectual and developmental disabilities—are often marginalized in post-secondary education settings. We present our three phase plan approach to inclusion for a college setting at the Western Washington University. We outline the process used to develop an inclusive program offering students with complex needs opportunities to experience campus life and to become a student at the institution.

Comments

Jeffery L. Hart, PhD: My research examines the importance of providing students with complex needs the opportunity to attend post-secondary education (PSE). This includes the benefits of attending PSE and improvements in life outcomes. Additionally, I conduct research in identifying key variables associated with exercise and classroom performance.
