Disability Services

Director, ext. 2955

Disability Services provides support services at all College campuses and centers that enable students with disabilities to fully participate in the life of the academic community.

Disability Services provides the following services to students with documented disabilities: accommodations; assistive technology and training; self-advocacy and leadership training; and coordination of services with local agencies such as Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, and Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Disability Services also provides screening for learning disabilities based upon faculty referral and/or self-report.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact Disability Services early to allow adequate time to arrange accommodations prior to the beginning of classes. A minimum of 3 - 6 weeks may be needed to arrange for certain accommodations. Learn more about Disability Services at www.BristolCC.edu.
