Equable Involvement of Students with Disabilities in Higher Education
Abstract: Since independence, India has made considerable gains in the education of children with disabilities, and significant advancements have been made in the previous ten years at the basic and secondary education levels. However, in terms of higher education, just 1.2 percent of students with disabilities do so (DNIS News Network, 1 September 2004). Because of this, the majority of students with disabilities are still distant from pursuing higher education. Numerous factors underlie this, according to research investigations carried out both abroad and in India. The majority of studies are carried out abroad and are impacted by the local culture. The current study examines how students with disabilities, particularly specifically women students with disabilities, participate in higher education and the problems they confront. In this context, the current study examined the existing situation of students with disabilities; various steps implemented by universities to meet the needs of students with disabilities; and issues that students with disabilities experience in higher education.
