Levels of Support

The Counseling and Disability Center provides two levels of service to assist students who need additional academic support.

Level 1{expander}

These services include auxiliary aids and services designed to help students with disabilities. Disability Services are required by law (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973). Our commitment is to provide reasonable accommodations and support for students with documented learning disabilities. Documentation must have been completed within the past three years by a physician, clinical psychologist or learning specialist. We coordinate on-site testing for disability documentation for students needing to update previous documentation and/or who have no documentation.

Level 2{expander}

These services are part of the general services available to the entire student population. Students are tested when they enter college to identify areas of weakness. Tutoring with learning specialists is available to all students with learning disability. Support courses in reading and memory development are open to any student.

Available Services

Several services are available through the Counseling and Disability services some of which are listed below.

Books on Tape{expander}

For those who qualify, textbooks can be ordered through Recordings for the Blind and Dyslexic. It may take up to two weeks for the recordings to arrive. Contacting the Counseling and Disability Services at the beginning of the semester for service will help facilitate academic success.

Note-taker Accommodations{expander}

It often helps to have another student who is a good note-taker provide copies of his/her lecture notes so that a student with a learning disability can give their full attention to the lecture.

Testing Accommodations{expander}

Students with disabilities are eligible for test accommodations determined on an individual basis. The term “Test” in this instance includes quizzes and examinations taken during the semester in conjunction with an academic class. Students should discuss their specific needs for testing accommodations each semester on a course-by-course basis with the disabilities coordinator. Examples of testing accommodations include: extended time; separate location; use of computer; etc.
