Theoretical Orientation and Discipline of Practice as Influences on Attitudes of Counselor Educators Toward Persons With Disabilities
Adrianne L. Johnson
The increase in the enrollment of students with disabilities in postsecondary institutions requires faculty to become familiar with the issues which emerge during the educational career of students with disabilities. Students with disabilities now comprise a substantial population in higher education, and it is of growing interest to counselor educators how students with disabilities are being perceived by faculty enrolled in their courses. It is especially important for counselor educators to fully understand the interplay of dynamics between attitudes and programmatic standards to enhance the educational experience of students with disabilities.
