Create campuses inclusive and supportive of disabled students, staff, and faculty Disability in Higher Education: A Social Justice Approach examines how disability is conceptualized in higher education and ways in which students, faculty, and staff with disabilities are viewed and served on college campuses. Drawing on multiple theoretical frameworks, research, and experience creating inclusive campuses, this text offers a new framework for understanding disability using a social justice lens. Many institutions focus solely on legal access and accommodation, enabling a system of exclusion and oppression. However, using principles of universal design, social justice, and other inclusive practices, campus environments can be transformed into more inclusive and equitable settings for all constituents. The authors consider the experiences of students, faculty, and staff with disabilities and offer strategies for addressing ableism within a variety of settings, including classrooms, residence halls, admissions and orientation, student organizations, career development, and counseling. They also expand traditional student affairs understandings of disability issues by including chapters on technology, law, theory, and disability services. Using social justice principles, the discussion spans the entire college experience of individuals with disabilities, and avoids any single-issue focus such as physical accessibility or classroom accommodations. The book will help readers: Consider issues in addition to access and accommodation Use principles of universal design to benefit students and employees in academic, cocurricular, and employment settings Understand how disability interacts with multiple aspects of identity and experience. Despite their best intentions, college personnel frequently approach disability from the singular perspective of access to the exclusion of other important issues. This book provides strategies for addressing ableism in the assumptions, policies and practices, organizational structures, attitudes, and physical structures of higher education.

The need for transition services for students with exceptionalities is apparent and critical for their success after high school. It is essential for school professionals, parents, and students to work collaboratively and consultively to determine each student's future goals and develop an effective plan to meet those goals successively. This book, therefore, focuses on all aspects of that transition planning from school to postschool levels. The text provides the reader with a foundation of transition services and a historical overview of models and practices and offers a critical look at transition with students from culturally and ethnically diverse backgrounds. In addition, it presents an in-depth look at assistive technology to assist students in fully participating in the planning for their future and also describes the process for planning and the importance of family collaboration. It offers an extensive discussion of career development and the importance of work experiences and also reviews key social skills and leisure options. Finally, the text looks at independent living options and reviews available successful postsecondary education programs. The format of the book is unique and the text is written in a style that all readers can comprehend and understand; the information can be easily applied to classroom and transition programs. This book will be an excellent resource for researchers, scholars, educators, and service providers and will serve as either a required or supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate transition courses in special education.
