Post-Secondary Education

A growing number of two and four-year colleges and universities are now including students with cognitive disabilities in educational, independent living and vocational programs. Students in comprehensive transition and post-secondary programs receive a variety of supports and are often provided opportunities to participate in regular college classes with support from peer mentors or instructional staff. They also may audit or otherwise participate in regular courses, participate in internships and other vocational opportunities, or enroll in courses specially designed for students with cognitive disabilities.
