Student Disability Advisor –

Being a disabled student should not set you apart from other students and should not negatively affect your education, especially when nearly one out of every five higher-education students is disabled. As such, state and federal legislation endeavors to create reasonable accommodations for disabled students to help them achieve their educational and career goals seamlessly. Unfortunately, though, many schools drop the ball when it comes to providing reasonable accommodations, creating excessive frustrations and difficulties for students and their families.
