An area of study within disability studies is the representation of disability in literature. Imaginative texts are replete with intellectually challenged characters. Novels such as Dostoyevsky's The Idiots, Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, and O'Connor's The Violent Bear It Away include developmentally delayed characters. Other types of prose also include characters called in variously disparaging terms.

In an era of fast technological growth and transforming art forms
there is an increasing need for educational flexibility by academic
institutions. It is essential to keep in mind that the profile of
higher education in the 21st century is going to be very different to
what it used to be.

What is our role in this changing environment and how do we proceed?

Deliberations on the prevalent trends and the future of education
indicate that "innovation" combined with breakthrough partnerships are
considered keys to the future.
