Learning disabled -- Education (Higher);
During the past ten years, access to higher education for students with disabilities has brought diversity to campuses and challenges to college and university personnel who must ensure equal opportunity in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Furthermore, passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26, 1990, rekindled debate about the responsibilities of higher education to students with disabilities. Increasing numbers of students with learning disabilities are attending colleges and universities. According to the Higher Education And The Handicapped Resource Center (HEATH, 1995), the percentage of students with learning disabilities doubled from 15 to 32 percent since 1985 among first-time, full-time freshmen who reported having a disability.
