Disability Support 服务

Disability Support 服务, a division of the Department of Enrollment 服务, 是否有指定办公室为残疾学生提供服务.

The mission of the Office of Disability Support 服务 is to coordinate 服务 and accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure accessibility and usability of all programs, 服务, 和活动. Disability Support 服务 also serves as a resource for information and as an advocate for students with disabilities for full participation in all aspects of campus life.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) gives individuals with disabilities civil rights protection that is similar to that provided to all individuals on the basis of race, 性, 国家的起源, 和宗教. The act guarantees equal opportunity in employment, public accommodations, 运输, state and local government 服务, and telecommunications. 除了, Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation act states: “No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States shall, solely on the basis of his/her handicap, be denied benefits of, 或在接受联邦财政援助的任何项目或活动中受到歧视".

明升app的政策与《明升app》和第504条相一致. SAU Tech is open and accessible to students with disabilities. We are committed to providing assistance to enable qualified students to accomplish their educational goals as well as assuring equal opportunity to derive all of the benefits of campus life.

Confidentiality and Release of Information
The Office of Disability Support 服务 is committed to ensuring all information regarding a student remains confidential as required or permitted by law. 这些信息可能包括成绩、传记历史、残疾信息和病例记录. 除了经过授权的工作人员,没有人可以立即查看我们办公室的学生档案. Any information regarding a disability gained from medical or psychological evaluations shall be considered confidential and shall be shared with others within the institution on a need-to-know basis only.

与残疾相关的信息将像对待医疗信息一样对待. 例如, college faculty and staff do not have a right or a need to access diagnostic or other information regarding a student’s disability related needs. 学生可以 sign a written consent form giving our office permission to discuss the disability with faculty and staff, 父母, 教练, and/or advisors who require further information. 除非联邦或州法律要求,否则未经同意,信息不会被公布.

Accessing 服务
有资格通过残疾支援服务(DSS)申请学习住宿, students must present documentation of a disability. Documentation must be provided before accommodations can be arranged. 在大多数情况下, 文件将需要博士级别的专业人士,如心理学家, 医生, psychiatrists or neurologists. 专业人员应具有诊断和治疗残疾的经验, should prepare the documentation on appropriate clinical stationary, should sign the document and should be able to provide the college with verification of the experience and expertise in the specialty if asked.

The type of documentation may vary dependent upon the type of disability. Documentation should be current within three years, 但根据个人情况和残疾情况,可能需要例外.

身体有残疾的学生须由适当的, qualified professional.

Students who reside outside the campus community and are taking only online courses will follow a somewhat different process. DSS申请过程可以完全通过电话进行,或者部分通过电子邮件和部分通过电话进行. 而不是亲自和你的教授讨论后勤和住宿问题, you will contact them by phone or e-mail. You will need to indicate to DSS that you are an online student, so we will know to send the letters to your professors via email. It is still necessary for you to contact your professors to work out accommodation logistics for exams and to follow up to be sure they received your Faculty Notification Letter.

Students Without Documentation

一些没有接受过认知障碍测试的学生联系了我们的办公室, such as a 学习 disability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or a psychological disability, but suspect that they may have one. 明升app没有资源提供必要的测试. DSS will provide students with a list of appropriate professionals who are qualified to conduct a diagnostic evaluation. The cost of such an evaluation ranges between $450.00和1,200元.00. Insurance companies sometimes pay for testing, but often they do not. 在某些情况下,当地的服务机构可以为学生提供经济帮助.
