ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to identify instructor perceptions, needs, and effective support system for instructor to teach college students with disabilities. A survey of sixty two university instructors was carried out to investigate their perceptions and needs of teaching college students with disabilities. In addition, interviews of four instructors and four experts in the higher education for disabled students were implemented. Furthermore, two outstanding universities in the United States were investigated to find out their policy and strategies for instructor support. The results of survey reveal that instructors have low perception of accommodations related to the test and evaluation and that they need to be provided disability information and accommodation guide. Finally, the results of the study suggest an instructor support system in terms of five dimensions, which are procedure, information, counseling and education, assistance, and disability awareness.
