Accessibility Consultants work with students to determine academic accommodations based on disability-related needs, the program requirements and documentation.
Students are not required to disclose their diagnosis to Accessible Learning Services in order to receive accommodations. However, students are usually asked to provide documentation outlining the functional impact of their disability.
Accommodations are provided to students with both temporary and permanent disabilities.
Students who are in the process of being assessed by a health care provider are eligible to receive interim accommodations.
Documentation is helpful to determine the most appropriate accommodations.
Depending on the accommodation need, our office may ask for additional, updated, or more specific documentation. You may wish to take our Medical Report Form to your doctor to be filled out.
