Abstract:

This final report discusses the activities of Project paacs (Postsecondary Accommodations for Academic and Career Success), a project located on the campus of Mississippi State University and designed to work with the T. K. Martin Center for Technology and Disability to research the assistive technology needs of students with disabilities. Comprehensive research on the assistive technology needs of 141 college students with disabilities was conducted, analyzed and used as the basis for a model training program and a desk reference guide that provided a quick reference for ways assistive technology may improve and expand the academic, career, and employment opportunities of such students. The knowledge of disability laws and recent court cases of 400 faculty/administrators and 70 student affairs staff was also used in the development of a second model training program. The final component of the training program was a guide that provided essential information on accommodations for students with disabilities. A case study of a 27-year-old senior with a history of learning disabilities illustrates how assistive technology can be used to assist with reading, writing, taking notes, and organization. Appendices include assessment forms and training syllabus. (Cr).
