Presentation summary: The Higher Education Opportunities Act of 2008 created grants for Transition and Postsecondary Education Programs for Students with Intellectual Disability (TPSID) model demonstration projects. The National Coordinating Center for the TPSID programs shared findings from its recent evaluation of 58 TPSID programs located at US colleges and universities in 2019-20 as well as trend data over 10 years related to inclusive course access, career development, campus membership, credential attainment and employment outcomes at these programs. Presenters offered insights about effective K-12 transition and higher education practices and policies that allow students with ID to access college.
