Academic Support Services Students with Disabilities
Disability Services is the most helpful to students with special needs when students identify their needs before they begin classes. Once the student is on campus, the director is available to work with him at any point in the academic year. Students vary in their need for consultation and guidance by the director.
Wabash, like all colleges and universities, requires documentation of a disability if a student is to receive accommodation for his disability. The documentation is kept on file in the office of Disability Services and is confidential. It is the decision of the student whether or not to request accommodation, and it is his responsibility to provide acceptable documentation and notify the relevant staff members of his condition and of his desire for accommodation(s).
It is extremely helpful for a student's advisor and professors to be aware of his learning differences. Please contact Dr. Heather Thrush to arrange a meeting and discuss how Disability Services can help you excel as a Wabash Man.
