Description

First published in 1998, this volume compares disability services and strategies along with students with disabilities across various countries around the world. Its publication followed a series of conferences held at different international locations. These papers have been brought together with the aim to better inform our understanding of approaches to disabled students and their experiences. Focusing on topics such as the Australian Disability Discrimination Act (1992), disability policy and supporting students with disabilities in higher education, this volume will be of use to students, lecturers, researchers and policymakers, whether able-bodied, neurotypical or disabled.
