Future research should address the limitations in the current study as well as explore significant implications of the survey data. Specifically, investigations are needed in which the technology survey is administered with a larger random sample of recent college graduates with disabilities representing several postsecondary institutions. In this same vein, studies with undergraduates are needed to determine their satisfaction with current technology training services. Such studies would produce broader insights into issues pertaining to the varieties of technology assessment and transfer services needed, the adequacy of academic advising regarding technology utilization, and the extent of preparation students receive regarding technology utilization in employment. Research is needed to identify effective advisors in order to learn how they acquire and use current information on assistive technology in their work with students. Finally, social skills research is needed to determine whether students can match their high accommodation-seeking self-efficacy, as reported in this article, with skill demonstration in role-play and in in-vivo situations.
