The Role of Legislation, Advocacy, and Systems Change in Promoting Postsecondary Opportunities for Students with Intellectual Disabilities

This chapter in Think College! Postsecondary Education Options for Students with Intellectual Disabilities provides the reader with a description of the most relevant current federal legislation and initiatives that support or have the potential to support access to PSE for individuals with ID and, it is hoped, promote greater utilization of these options. Systems-change efforts in New Jersey, South Carolina, and Massachusetts are also discussed, as are recommendations for policy, practices, and systems change.
