Let's Talk about Health: Engaging College Students with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities and Support Staff in Conversations about Health and Wellness Needs
MetadataShow full metadata
This study explored the health experiences and health promotion needs of college students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) through individual interviews with current college seniors (n = 5) and recent college graduates (n = 3) with IDD, and support staff (n = 9) within a Southeastern universityâs inclusive postsecondary education (IPSE) program. Interviews with college seniors and recent graduates with IDD involved photo elicitation and a que-sorting exercise. Interviews with IPSE program staff involved reactions to the que-sorting results of the interviewees with IDD. Thematic findings from current college seniors/recent college graduates with IDD and IPSE program staff are discussed.
