Accommodations and Services for Students with Disabilities
Accommodations are reasonable adjustments to the classroom and campus that help students have equal access to their education at Winthrop. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis considering the limitations caused by the disability as documented by a qualified health services provider. Based on the student s documentation, they may be eligible for a variety of accommodations, including but not limited to:Accessible ComputersAccessible Desks and TablesAccessible Residence hallsBraille and Large PrintLearning Assistance (study skills and time management)NotetakersPriority RegistrationProfessor NotificationReader/Scribe ServicesSign-Language InterpretersTape RecordersTest-Taking AccommodationsText Telephone Devices (TTD) for Persons Who Are Hearing Impaired Textbooks-on-Tape
Independence is the primary goal in providing services for students with disabilities, and students are encouraged to use services as a support to accomplish their academic goals. Students should be aware that while accommodations are intended to remove barriers to learning, they do not ensure success.
