Few instruments or studies have been designed to measure the degree of stigmatization experienced by college and University students with disabilities. Yet, many researchers acknowledge through qualitative studies and other forms of experiential data that postsecondary students with disabilities do in fact encounter significant stigma effects. This study focused on the development, testing, and preparation for wider use of a Likert-type survey to measure self-reported degrees of stigmatization in college students with self-disclosed disabilities. The development of the Postsecondary Student Survey of Disability-Related Stigma (PSSDS) is part of a growing post-ADA effort to reduce stigma and make postsecondary education more accessible for students with disabilities.
