Abstract

The study aims to examine the availability level of services and facilities provided for students with disabilities at Al Al-Bayt University from their own perceptions. Descriptive and analytical methodologies were used. Data was collected using a questionnaire consisting of (65) criteria distributed on (6) domains. Participants included all students with visual, hearing, and physical disabilities, with a total of (53) students from all faculties. All students receive support from the disability support division at the university. Results indicated that the availability of services and accommodations provided for students with disabilities were ranked respectively as follows: facilitations regarding information resources, social services, administrative facilitation, academic services and accommodations, physical accommodations, and finally library services and accommodations. The mean degree on the total score was (M = 1.81) which indicates a medium level. Also, results showed no statistically significant differences at (α = 0.05) due to type of disability on all domains and on the total degree for the nature of services and accommodations provided. There were also no statistically significant differences at (α = 0.05) due to the type of faculty on all domains and on the total degree for the nature of services and accommodations provided.
