Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA):
The ADA is a federal civil rights act that was put into place to protect and prohibit the discrimination against those who have a disability both physically and mentally. The ADA guarantees that those with a clinically diagnosed disability will have the same opportunities as everyone else while working, in school, or in the community throughout the duration of their life.
What does it mean to have accommodation in college? An accommodation is a legally mandated modification or service provided to a person with a disability. The accommodations that are offered are meant to provide equal access and opportunities to the student while they are in college.
Faculty, Staff, and Students are all able to gain access to this information via the Manor College website or the Disabilities Office.
Any questions regarding accommodations can be directed to the Disabilities Services Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. A student who contacts the Disabilities Office wanting accommodations will be provided with a Request for Accommodations form that they will fill out.
a. Within the Request for Accommodations is a “Provider Section” where their doctor will explain their diagnosis and recommend specific accommodations based on the diagnosis they disclosed on the form.
b. If the student has an IEP they will provide this, instead of filling out the “Provided Section” on the Request for Accommodations form.
i. Their IEP will help provide information related to accommodations they received in high school. The Disabilities Officer will interpret the IEP and make suitable/reasonable accommodations that the student can use while at Manor.
2. After the Disabilities Officer has reviewed the Request for Accommodations form they will provide the student and all professor’s that the student listed with an Accommodations Letter that outlines all the accommodations that the student will have for that semester.
3. The student is responsible for renewing accommodations every semester via the Renewal of Accommodation form.
