Inclusive Florida Colleges for Students with Intellectual Disability

Here you will find an evolving list of Florida’s inclusive postsecondary education (IPSE) programs serving students between the ages of 18 and 43. Programs, colleges, and universities listed here are those the Consortium was able to contact and met the definition of inclusive postsecondary education for students with intellectual disabilities as defined in the TPSID initiative of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA, 2008) 

Click here to learn more about Inclusive Postsecondary Education (IPSE).

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA; 2008) defines inclusive postsecondary education programs as those where students with intellectual disabilities take college courses and work in internships and employment, both with their typical peers. The initiative calls for the establishment of meaningful credentials for students with intellectual disabilities; credentials that speak to employers of capability, skills, and self-initiative. Finally, the initiative focuses on gainful employment outcomes; postsecondary education must result in paid employment (FCIHE, 2016).

If you are aware of a Florida IPSE program that is not on this list that you believe meets the requirements above, please contact Dr. Kathleen Becht at [email protected].
