MD House Bill 0813 - Task Force to Study the Impact of Expanding Credit and Noncredit Courses for Students with IDD

A Task Force was created by the Maryland General Assembly in July 2013, as a result of this bill.  

Among the Task Force recommendations:

  •  Recommends that Maryland develop an RFP to create two inclusive PSEs for students with IDD, with a $1 million investment in planning and initial implementation.
  • Also recommends that Maryland should create a state-level scholarship program for students with disabilities, establish universal design principles for accessible courses, and announce CTP guidelines that require at least 50% of courses in PSE programs for students with IDD be fully inclusive.
  • Urges higher education institutions to create scholarships of their own for students with IDD.
