Students with intellectual disability want to go to college and we are here to help make that happen. With the increase in inclusive practices in elementary and secondary schools, families are empowered to set meaningful long-term goals for their children with intellectual disability, including an inclusive college education, competitive integrated employment, and independent community living.
So, how does one start a college program for students with intellectual disability? Whether you are establishing a 4-year residential program or a 2-year commuter option, some basic first steps are involved. Staff from Think College have collected our best resources and developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you get started. Please visit the Program Development page in our Innovation Exchange to find some great foundational information.
