Providing transition services for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (iDD) on a college campus creates opportunities for academic, vocational, and social skills instruction in a community setting with college-age peers. A survey conducted in 2008 of college programs in the U.S. for students with IDD ages 18–21 (Papay & Bambara, 2011) gathered information on these programs and the opportunities they provide. Survey questions addressed the characteristics of postsecondary education programs and the extent to which students with iDD were participating in college classes. Results are shared.
