Parent Perspectives on Preparing Students with Intellectual Disabilities for Inclusive Postsecondary Education

Parent Perspectives on Preparing Students with Intellectual Disabilities for Inclusive Postsecondary Education

In this study, researchers explored parent perspectives regarding the personal competencies students with intellectual disabilities (ID) needed to be better prepared for participation in an Inclusive Postsecondary Education program (IPSE). A panel of parents reached consensus on a list of 30 personal competencies that support student preparation for IPSE. The list is included at the end of the study. How the results of this study could be used by parents and professionals to help students with ID be more prepared and successful in college-based programs is also discussed.
