Not just children anymore : Personnel preparation regarding postsecondary education for adults with disabilities.
Given the significant growth in the number of adults with disabilities pursuing postsecondary education, it has become necessary to not only prepare more people to assume professional roles at the college and university level to work with this population, but also to enhance the knowledge of secondary-level special education personnel regarding the needs of students with disabilities who choose to pursue higher education following high school. The professionalization of postsecondary disability services, the changes in services available to students in postsecondary education, and suggestions to improve personnel preparation related to the transition to postsecondary education for students with disabilities are discussed.
