Inclusive Higher Education in the Time of COVID-19
This article describes how programs responded to meet the needs of students with intellectual disability (ID) in response to campus closures and remote learning. The authors relied on individual experiences as well as notes from the Think College program staff meetings, focusing on academics, social inclusion, and employment, as well as the changing roles of peer mentors and families. The article concludes by looking forward to the Fall semester and beyond, examining the longer-term impact of remote instruction and what this could mean for inclusive higher education.
