The process: Development of AHEAD program standards.
During the past twenty years, the number of college students with disabilities has increased dramatically. There has been a corresponding increase in the extent of services offered and the number of programs available for this cohort. Unfortunately, little research has identified Office for Students with Disabilities administratorsâ€™ perceived importance of service components considered essential for assuring equal access to education for students with disabilities. A 62-item survey was developed to identify those service components postsecondary disability practitioners consider essential for assurance of equal educational access for students with disabilities. The survey development process is described and findings related to the study and its implications are presented.
