Beth Myers, executive director of the Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education, recently guest edited a special issue of TASH Connections on Post-Secondary Education and Self-Advocacy. This issue of TASH Connections highlights the voices of self-advocates, sometimes alongside their friends and colleagues, who share their stories of attending college across the world. Over the past several years, post-secondary education has become an increasingly viable option for students labeled with intellectual or developmental disabilities. The opportunities provided by inclusive college programming are numerous and growing. This issue leaves readers with a breadth of qualitative data demonstrating the power of post-secondary education for students with disabilities.
