Description:
Despite the growth of interest in supporting the learning of disabled students what the students themselves have to say about their experiences has hardly been heard. This paper explores the barriers to learning faced by ‘disabled’ students in higher education and how these compare with the difficulties encountered by ‘non-disabled’ students. Drawing on selected findings from four different research studies, together covering over 800 students, it concludes that categorising students as ‘disabled’ is problematic as they have an overlapping continuum of needs with those of non-disabled students.
