Inclusive individual support model  

The inclusive individual support model (Hart, Grigal, Sax, Martinez, & Will, 2006) provides students with individualized services to facilitate access to and participation in college courses. There is no program base on campus because the students participate in the campus community – just like any other college student. The focus is on establishing a student-identified future vision and career goal that directs the course of study and employment experiences.
