Special Needs and Disabilities Resources

  • Receive individualized attention from our knowledgeable Disabilities Specialist whenever you need. Schedule an appointment as soon as possible so you can take advantage of our services early in the semester.
  • We work with students and faculty to develop individualized learning strategies and reasonable accommodations. 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 format or via screen reader
 

**To be eligible for the office’s services and accommodations, students must provide documentation of a disability from an appropriate licensed professional. For more specific information about documentation requirements, please contact our Disability Specialist. Reasonable accommodations modify or adjust a course, program, or activity, and provide equal access to a range of services, equipment, and course alternatives. Reasonable accommodations should not fundamentally alter a course, program, or activity, and are based on a student’s documented disability. Disability Services works with students and faculty to develop appropriate strategies and accommodations to meet a student’s disability-related needs for each term.
