Post Secondary Education Options in Florida 

In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed.  This had a great influence on postsecondary education trends among deaf and hard of hearing people, and other people with disabilities, too.  For example, before 1990, only five to ten postsecondary institutions in Florida were known to be serving just 100+ Deaf or Hard of Hearing students.

Currently in Florida, approximately 70 postsecondary institutions (four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, private colleges, and vocational-technical schools) have served 700+ Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.
