Education

Creative coursework at Institutions of Higher Education

Higher Education is not (and should not be!) only about academics. For students with more severe disabilities, it is possible to create and run courses that must be considered "out of the box", but might also attract students who do not have disabilities. For example, "Touch" ceramics/working with clay (Not visual, just touch), music and movement (including for the Deaf/hard of hearing), social skills (including social networking), technology for and with the disabled, etc. A lot more youth with low-incidence disabilities (and high incidence too, AND non-disabled) might be interested and attend.
