Accessibility For Education

Did you know that one billion people in the world have a mental or physical disability? Or that 12.9% of all students in North America have some form of disability?

What Does This Mean For Education?


North American high school graduation rates for disabled students have risen 0.5% since 2011. 64% now earn a high school diploma in 4 years. Unfortunately, North American high school dropout rates have also risen 0.5% in as many years. 19.7% of students with a disability will drop out before completing high school.

Most students choose not to disclose their disability when they enter higher education. That’s 60 to 80% of North American undergrads and 9% of graduate students. Even so, there is a lot that we,¬†as product designers, can do to help disabled students be successful.
