Academic accommodations and services are individualized and developed on a case-by-case basis. Specific accommodations are determined by an intake with a Disability Services Specialist and a student's documentation. Academic accommodations will be reasonable and appropriate based on a student's disability. Academic accommodations do not include services or equipment of a personal nature.
During an intake, students meet with a Disability Services Specialist to discuss their strengths, academic concerns, past experiences, and impacts of disability. An intake is a conversation to discuss what worked or did not work in the past as well as developing new resources and strategies for the college environment. Documentation provides the Disability Services Specialist with an understanding of an individual's disability and information to anticipate the current impact of the disability and how it interacts with the college environment.
The DisAbility Specialist takes into consideration the information shared during intake along with documentation when developing an accommodation plan.
