Myths and Realities of Disability Services for Students

Taken from the April 19th IU Chemical Notations:

Wednesday, April 21
Noon to 1:00 pm
IMU - Oak Room

Whitney Manchester (Learning Disability Coordinator) and Dorothy Lenard (Support Services Coordinator) from the Office of Disability Services for Students will offer a presentation that demystifies the actual process by which DSS works with IU students to develop and implement reasonable and appropriate accommodations.

They will show the connection between student limitations and the kinds of accommodations developed to offset them. The session will be interactive and informative - starting with a "Pop Quiz” where the myths are represented by a dragon and reality by an alligator. Be ready to sharpen your pencils and ACE the pop quiz—“YOU'LL know the difference between the dragon and the alligator” by the end of the session.

If you plan to attend this session and require a sign language interpreter, real time captioning, assistive listening system, another auxiliary aid or information in alternate format, please contact Alice Voigt, Accessibility Specialist, at the National Center on Accessibility (812) 856-4422 (voice) or (812) 856-4421 (TTY).
