Post-Secondary Education Research Study

Parents of students with intellectual disabilities of all ages, please participate in a post-secondary education research study!

The time is now for your voice to be heard!

We are pleased to announce a growing movement of concerned parents and professionals who envision a Colorado in which Higher Education opportunities are available for students with intellectual disabilities. The mission of IN! Colorado Initiative for Inclusive Higher Education is to work with colleges and universities in Colorado to design and create inclusive post-secondary opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities on at least two campuses by fall of 2016. Our hope is that within ten years, students with intellectual disabilities will be fully included in the academic, residential, and social components of college life across Colorado.

IN! Colorado Initiative for Inclusive Higher Education has formed a partnership with JFK Partners at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Designed as Colorado's University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, JFK Partners has teamed up with IN! to design a survey for parents of students with disabilities. This partnership makes it possible for parents to give input and ultimately help create a program for young adults with intellectual disabilities in Colorado. If you are a parent of an individual with an intellectual disability, please click HERE to complete this research survey. The survey should not take more than 10 minutes to complete.

Please complete the survey before April 1, 2015.
