In recent years, many colleges and universities across the country have been creating opportunities for students with disabilities. Although laws are different from the k-12 public school system to colleges/universities, individuals with disabilities are still protected. In the k-12 setting, schools follow the law based on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004. Post-secondary options, however, follow the law outlined by the Office for Civil Rights.
