Introducing Kentucky’s Supported Higher Education Project


Students need opportunities for continuing education and career exploration – ways to discover, develop and use their interests and talents to make a positive difference in the world. Sound like a universal human need? You’re right; it is! However, for students with intellectual disabilities, postsecondary opportunities have been limited. Thankfully, a national movement is underway promoting a strong system of supports and services – providing ways for students with intellectual disabilities to pursue postsecondary education and prepare themselves as vital contributing members of the workforce. Top institutions around the country are initiating programs that recognize the importance of post-secondary education for ALL students, including those with intellectual disabilities. This is good public policy, and an idea that’s developed significant interest in Kentucky.
