Serajul Haq, Faridah (2007) Educational opportunities for students with disabilities: the experience of a university student in Brunei / Faridah Serajul Haq. Asian Journal of University Education (AJUE), 3 (1). pp. 81-91. ISSN 1823-7797

Abstract

In Brunei, increased numbers of children with disabilities have been given educational opportunities in appropriate programs in schools. Students with disabilities have also succeeded in qualifying for higher studies on completing secondary education. However, there is a need for local university and colleges to cater to the specific needs of students with disabilities. This paper describes the experiences
of a student with visual disabilities in Universiti Brunei Darussalam.
The student emphasised his use of compensatory learning strategies,
the accommodation available on campus, peer relationships and
self-advocacy to communicate his needs. The support given to the
student facilitated his academic success. The student is fully aware
of his capabilities and his positive self-esteem has helped to
overcome various setbacks. It is hoped that the information provided
in this article will foster improvement in providing facilities for
students with disabilities to learn in comfort and for the future
enrollment of more students with special needs.
