Educational Services for Students With Disabilities From Moving-In to Moving-Out of Chiang Mai University


The research objectives were to examine the state of educational services that Disability Support Services Center at Chiang Mai University (DSSCMU) provided to students with disabilities in compliance with the four strategies of education for individuals with disabilities in higher education under the Office of The Higher Education Commission. There were 59 participants in the study, who consisted of the DSSCMU staff and students with disabilities (SWDs). Research tools included 1) a questionnaire, 2) an interview form, and 3) a focus group form. Analyzed research data was reported using frequencies, percentages, means, standard deviation, and content analysis. The findings on the state of educational services offered to students showed that the DSSCMU was in compliance with all four outlined higher education strategies for individuals with disabilities. With respect to Strategy 1 – Providing Opportunities, the results showed that the SWDs had been recruited into Chiang Mai University by special projects (58.62%) and general exams (41.37%); Strategy 2 – Individual Educational Services, that most services which SWDs received were tutoring services (70.68%); Strategy 3 – Special Education Development, that DSSCMU disseminated knowledge about disabilities by encouraging and providing opportunities for students with or without disabilities to engage in activities together; and Strategy 4 – Employment Reaching-out, that collaborative projects with successful entrepreneurs or individuals helped inspire SWDs to develop themselves in order to meet the needs of the labor market.
