We are excited that the Computing Research Association's annual Taulbee Survey reported on the participation of students with disabilities in computing departments for the first time this year. After a feasibility study determined that a sufficient number of departments could report on the number of their students that receive accommodations, the questions were included and between one-third to one-half of the departments could offer information.

Based on this data, less than 1% of both master's and Ph.D. students received accommodations and 4.1% of undergraduate majors received disability-related accommodations. This information was pulled from the table on page 80 of the report.
