The Role and Impact of Vocational Rehabilitation in Inclusive Higher Education for Students with Intellectual Disability and Autism

This poster, presented at the NIDILRR 40th Anniversary Celebration (https://acl.gov/NIDILRR40), reports findings from a mixed-methods study by Think College staff on the role of vocational rehabilitation (VR) in promoting postsecondary education for students with intellectual disability and/or autism. The study included secondary analysis of data collected from TPSID model demonstration sites and intensive case studies of four effective VR/higher education partnerships. Findings address VR roles in supporting students, VR VR/IHE communication strategies, VR counselor attitudes, and student outcomes.
