AccessAbility Services (AAS) recommends that each course syllabus contain a statement reflecting compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, Section 504. Please use the following statement:
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact AccessAbility Services, located in room 2314 of the Manspeaker Instructional Building or call 360-538-4143.
It would be helpful if you draw attention to the AAS statement on the day you introduce the syllabus. Please do not have students discuss their specific needs within the hearing of other students. Please arrange to meet with the student outside of class time.
