Accommodation on Campus
Growing enrollment of students with disabilities in postsecondary education, along with key legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act and the Higher Education Opportunity Act (both of 2008), have significantly increased the number of students with disabilities on campuses across the U.S. The National Center for Education Statistics report that over 700,000 students identified as disabled and anticipate that this number will continue to grow. As it does, the necessity for intelligently designed accommodations for these students becomes ever more apparent. Accommodation was made to be a teaching tool for university administrators and educators, modeling universal design, accessibility, inclusivity, and peer-to-peer interaction.
