YOUR ROLE

Accessibility Services supports students with disabilities using a variety of accommodations. While you may have personal experience supporting someone with a particular disability, it is important to understand that accommodations are tailored to each student – not each disability. 

 

Not all students with a disability will choose to register with Accessibility Services. You may even encounter a student who is unaware that they have a disability.  You can learn more about recognizing common disabilities, along with additional ways to support your students in the Faculty Guide.

 

Have you ever wondered what it’s like?

By working together we’ll ensure that students’ needs are met while preserving the integrity of your course. We encourage you to read the Mount's policy to support students with disabilities for additional information about your role in providing an accessible academic experience.
