This Advisor Coffee Talk we were joined by Tay Edwards and Earlee Kerekes-Mishira from Disability Access Services. They came to share a variety of information on what DAS does, to who they serve, how we can best work with them and what to listen for when talking to students.
Did you know that DAS served over 900 students in the 2013-2014 school year? And that those students are spread out over a myriad of different disabilities, from temporary to permanent and lifelong?
Tay and Earlee covered the Registration Process, some terms; including ‘Reasonable Accommodations’ and how student go about receiving their accommodations.
Tay and Earlee also opened the floor for the advisors to ask their questions.
