Think College has released an updated Snapshot that summarizes key information on state activities related to postsecondary education for students with intellectual disability. The Snapshot shares the number of college options available in each state, as well as how many federally funded Transition and Postsecondary Education Programs for Students with Intellectual Disability (TPSID), and approved Comprehensive Transition Programs (CTP) there are in the state. A quick view chart indicates where there is state level policy or legislative activity and state or regional coordination that supports the development of higher education options for students with intellectual disability.
Meg Grigal, Senior Research Fellow at Think College, explains, “Our field is evolving quickly and sometimes it can be hard to know the current status of funding, legislation, and program development. And often this information is not available from a single source or easy to find. We created this Think College Snapshot to offer current summative data regarding critical markers of change in higher education for students with ID in a user-friendly format.”
The Snapshot is updated periodically to reflect the most recently available information. If you have any comments or questions about the Snapshot, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
