DID YOU KNOW...? There are approximately 54 million Americans who have at least one disability. This makes them the largest minority group in the nation. Consequently, as our baby boomer population ages, and more veterans return from war, this number will double in the next 20 years, to more than 100 million Americans.
EDUCATIONAL COACHES: We have added a new component to our list of accommodations to students qualifying for this assistance —educational coaches. An educational coach is an in-class individual who provides assistance organizing your notes, your assignments, and your schedule before and/or after class. Educational Coaches also provide an explanation of instructions given for class assignments/labs.
