An integrative model for developing transition-based dormitory experiences for individuals with developmental disabilities on college campuses
Journal of Transformative Education
This article explores the efficacy of placing individuals with developmental disabilities into college campus dormitories in the interest of facilitating transition into adulthood. Developmental challenges for participants and families are addressed, in addition to concerns for normalization, self-determination, and the broader concepts of social inclusion and community integration. An interactive model that incorporates the perspectives of participants, parents, local agency providers, and the hosting college is recommended. © 2008 Sage Publications.
