(Sept. 6, 2013) -- UTSA Student Disability Services (SDS) is a liaison between the university community and students needing academic accommodations. SDS promotes equal access to all university programs and activities by employing exemplary practices in disability counseling, assistive technology, alternative media, reasonable accommodations and the sharing of disability-related information.
Students must initiate the accommodation process with Student Disability Services, and staff members will help students develop a plan of support.
In contrast to services for students with disabilities in K-12, students in postsecondary education are not sought out and "identified" as needing accommodations. As young adults, students must "self-identify" as having a disability and provide Student Disability Services with supporting documentation.
UTSA Student Disability Services strives not only to be a support for students, but also a resource for UTSA faculty and staff and the San Antonio community.
Today, more and more high school students with disabilities plan to continue their education in postsecondary schools. As the result of federal legislation (Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act), students with disabilities are protected from discrimination in postsecondary education. So, it is important for students with disabilities to stay informed about their rights and responsibilities.
