Faculty and Staff Support
We understand that oftentimes working with students with disabilities requires advance preparation and knowledge regarding the provision of accommodations in the classroom. With the number of students with documented disabilities growing nationwide, your classroom is a microcosm of the community at large and whether students disclose or not, there will be students with disabilities, hidden or otherwise, in your class.
Wheaton College is committed to ensuring equal access and reasonable accommodations to all eligible students with documented disabilities. It is not uncommon for students to request accommodations directly from faculty; however, you and the student are better served by referring them to Abigail Cohen, Assistant Dean for Accessibility and Assistive Technology, who will work with you and the student in determining reasonable accommodations.
