On the CSULB campus, Disabled Student Services (DSS) provides support services for students with deaf or hearing impairments, communication disabilities, learning disabilities, visual limitations, mobility limitations and other functional disabilities. Prior to a student receiving assistance, documentation from a qualified professional source must be submitted to DSS.
Students eligible to receive support services from the DSS office will present a DSS Student/ Teacher Testing Agreement Form to each professor. Professors are encouraged to contact the DSS office with specific questions or concerns.
Many students are more comfortable about approaching their instructor if the following statement is a part of the faculty member's syllabus:
"Any student who feels that he or she may need an accommodation for any sort of disability, please make an appointment to see me during my office hours."< Introduction | Faculty Handbook Table of Contents | Deaf and Hearing Impairments >
