Disability-specific information may be helpful when you have a student with a disability in your class. It is important to remember that not all disabilities are obvious. The majority of students receiving accommodations through the Student Disability Resource Center are students who have non-apparent disabilities. Students who have non-apparent disabilities may choose not to mention his or her condition to the professor. For example, a student who has epilepsy that is controlled with medication, may not expect to require any adaptations or accommodations, and thus may not disclose their condition to you.
Because each student with a disability will have a different ability (even within the same disability category), the information presented here should be seen as general guides, not as specific instructions.
