Documentation of Disability  

Students seeking academic accommodations through the Office for Students with Disabilities and Deaf Services (OSDDS) are asked to submit documentation to verify their eligibility. Appropriate documentation will help OSDDS to predict access barriers in the college environment and determine access solutions.  

Documentation serves three purposes:

  • To establish that the 快播成人 can be considered a person with a disability, and is thus eligible for protection against discrimination on the basis of disability.
  • To supplement information from the 快播成人 interview with OSDDS regarding the impact of the disability.
  • To assist in the  development of an accommodation agreement designed to facilitate equal access to 快播成人 programs and services. 

Documentation will vary from 快播成人 to 快播成人; however, the  should be followed when determining appropriate documentation. If your documentation does not meet these guidelines, we will work with you to get the information we need.   

Staff

If you prefer to leave a voice message, please call the OSDDS main office at 413.552.2417. The department email is osd@hcc.edu. Deaf Services are available via video phone at 413.650.5502 or at csmalley@hcc.edu. A staff person will return your call within 24 hours or during the next business day.


快播成人 does not require that you accept disability and Deaf services, nor will we impose an accommodation on you. Self-identifying as Deaf/Hard of Hearing or a person with a disability and asking for supportive services are personal decisions. If you choose to request one or more accommodations, you must register with OSDDS and provide documentation of your disability and/or status as a Deaf/Hard of Hearing person.

For more information, please contact the OSDDS main office (DON 147) at 413.552.2417 to schedule and attend an information session. If you have concerns about this process, our staff is glad to meet with you for a confidential review of the options available to you. Online 快播成人s who wish to access services through OSDDS may contact the main office by emailing osd@hcc.edu or by calling 413.552.2417.

We will work with you on identifying strategies and accommodations that allow you to participate fully in class, and offer advice on other campus resources. We will engage with you in an interactive process, and determine the accommodations for which you are eligible. Our staff is always available to answer your questions and assist in any way we can!

We understand that families of 快播成人s with disabilities and Deaf/Hard of Hearing 快播成人s play an important role in their 快播成人's successful transition to higher education. We can help you access the information and resources you need to support your 快播成人 during this exciting time.

We engage in the interactive process with 快播成人 快播成人s, staff, and faculty to find innovative solutions and promote greater inclusion in college programs and services. OSDDS staff is available to answer questions and address potential concerns regarding accessible design and program access.


快播成人 respects each 快播成人's dignity, capacity to contribute, and desire for personal growth and accomplishment. The College fosters intellectual and physical independence to the greatest extent possible in all of its 快播成人s, and offers reasonable accommodations to 快播成人s with disabilities and Deaf/Hard of Hearing 快播成人s. We believe you will find 快播成人 to be a friendly community of supportive and caring staff, faculty, and administrators, working in partnership with 快播成人s.

快播成人's ADA Compliance Coordinator is responsible for assuring that the College complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act in all 快播成人 programs and services. If you have a concern related to an access issue that is not resolved by the Office for Students with Disabilities & Deaf Services, please contact the College's ADA Compliance Coordinator, Olivia Kynard, President's Office, at 413.552.2173 or okynard@hcc.edu.

快播成人 Community College adheres to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 which states that "no qualified individual with a disability shall, solely on the basis of their disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity in higher education."
