Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate disability resources available in New Jersey and Delaware Colleges (n= 22) by surveying each school's Disabilities Department. The hypothesis of this study was there exists little consistency between colleges and universities in terms of accommodations provided between institutions, within the schools surveyed in New Jersey and Delaware. To come to this conclusion, a survey was mailed to New Jersey and Delaware Colleges and Universities asking what accommodations they provide from the accommodations listed on the survey. Results indicated that each school that participated in the study offered different accommodations, proving the hypothesis to be correct. This study provides an assessment for future research in the field of disability resource. The road that has led to students receiving accommodations, the process, and future research are discussed.
