Needs Assessment of Persons with Disabilities
Egyptian Universities and Regional Technical Colleges Final Report
The Office of Education and Health funded a comprehensive needs assessment for People with Disabilities at Egypt's twenty-four public universities and eight public regional technical colleges. A number of themes emerged from an analysis of the data, which consisted of results from student and faculty group discussions, survey responses, as well as accessibility audits of the physical and online environments. The experiences and voices reflected in this report - especially of students with disabilities themselves - have important implications for advancing institutional policies, practices, and programming to achieve full and equal participation of students with disabilities in Egyptian public higher education.
