Given the availability of quality lower education for persons with disabilities in low and middle income countries, PWDs might get the opportunity to continue their studying in higher / university level. The fact is that in general, universities benefit from more independency in governing their own affairs. They follow sort of self-set internal policies. Positively, it puts into action both micro and macro dimensions of equal education. Promoting “community support services” can be considered as a micro dimensional approach on enhancing quality higher education for PWDs. Alongside with promoting macro-level policies which covers the whole country, implementing community support services in universities will add functional aspects to the strategies. This year, as one of the CIP fellows, I have the opportunity to work on a similar project.
