Abstract

The increasing number of students with disabilities enrolling in postsecondary education, and the variety of these disabilities, challenges higher education institutions to meet the unique needs of these students. Academic coaching has been found to be effective in enhancing student success and is one approach that can help meet the needs of students with disabilities. This paper describes an academic coaching model for students with disabilities, discusses the theoretical foundations on which the model was developed, and summarizes the results of an assessment of the program.
