Guide to Accommodating Students with Disabilities

Accommodations for Students with Psychological/Emotional Illnesses

Whether transitory, genetic, or prolonged, students with psychological/emotional illnesses need special consideration.  Due to the nature of these illnesses, many choose not to disclose their disability.

  • May need to use audio recorders and/or use note takers.
  • Social and classroom behaviors may differ from other students.  Contact the Office of Disability Services in S207 if concerned about inappropriate behavior.
  • Extended minutes without distractions may be needed for tests.
  • Reasonable allowance should be made for absences.  Consider extended time, if needed, for assignments.
  • Expect erratic performance.

Please refer such students to the Office of Disability Services in S207 (857-7286).
