New Law Opening the Doors to Inclusive Higher Education for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism

Massachusetts state colleges and universities will now include individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism. The law includes provisions that remove barriers precluding persons with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) and Autism from participating in higher education. Individuals with ID and autism who cannot pass MCAS and who do not obtain a regular high school diploma can participate as non-matriculating students in courses with their nondisabled peers and participate in extracurricular activities and other aspects of campus life, with supports and services necessary to facilitate inclusion.
