More Information
This Handbook is an essential starting point for cross-national examinations, comparisons, and discussions about state-of-the-art practices in higher education accessibility and service delivery support for disabled students. Spanning a broad geographical range, the topics addressed are examined within the context of the practice and philosophy of different countries.

With trends and practices varying from country to country, each topic is explored from a range of international perspectives. Structured into three distinct sections, the Handbook first addresses how students with disabilities and their families can prepare for the transition to postsecondary education, before moving to present an overview of the types of support and services available to students with disabilities. The final chapters then explore a variety of topics related to higher education and disability, including assistive technology, disability culture and social justice, emerging trends and promising practices, self-determination and universal design.

This accessible Handbook will prove an invaluable reference tool for researchers, academics and students with an interest in the sociology of education from health, education and welfare policy perspectives, as well as for higher education policymakers and funding and governance bodies.
