Disability Services at Brevard College works to assure access to the College and its programs for students with disabilities, coordinating and providing reasonable accommodations, advocating for an accessible and hospitable learning environment, and promoting student self determination.
Students are assisted in understanding their strengths and functional limitations within a postsecondary setting. Students are supported as they develop their ability and their confidence in communicating this information as appropriate to professors or staff.
To be eligible for services and accommodations, students must provide documentation of a disability from an appropriate licensed professional. For more specific information about documentation requirements, please contact the Disability Specialist.
Reasonable accommodations modify or adjust a course, program, or activity, which provides a person who has a disability with equal access. They include a range of services, equipment, and course alterations. Reasonable accommodations should not fundamentally alter courses, programs, and activities. Reasonable accommodations are based on how a student’s documented disability currently affects him or her. Disability Services works with students and faculty to determine appropriate strategies and accommodations to meet a student’s disability-related needs for each term.
Some examples of accommodations include:
- Extended Test Time
- Testing In A Distraction-Reduced Setting
- Use of a Test Reader
- Use Of A Computer Or Scribe During Written Exams
- Use of Grammar Or Spell Check Assistance
- Note Takers
- Use Of Adaptive Computer Equipment
- Books in Audio Formats Or Via Screen Reader
