Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations
Advocacy and Disclosure
Students are their own best advocates in most cases. Because of this and our guidelines on confidentiality, we prefer that you discuss the accommodation that DSPS has recommended directly with your instructor.
Notification to Instructors
The programs do not routinely send notifications or accommodation letters to your instructors. If you want this as a service, you must ask for it. You may hand carry the notification to your instructor or sign off that you wish the program to send it.
Steps to Receive Instructor Notifications:
We encourage students to clarify how they are doing in classes during the quarter by monitoring the feedback on their work, calculating their grade periodically, and talking with instructors. We will assist you in learning a process to use throughout your academic career to evaluate your class progress. However, if you feel it would be useful and you request it, we can also send out mid-quarter Progress Checks to your instructors. We will then share the information with you and help plan any needed interventions.
