An intake is typically the first appointment you will experience when requesting accommodations/services at the Disability Resource Center. The intake is scheduled for a 60 minute time frame and begins with the student completing an online intake form which includes: demographics, information related to their disability, previous accommodations/services, treatment history, etc. Through an interactive process, DRC staff will meet with you to discuss your request for accommodations/services, strengths, challenges, and the likely impact of your disability on your educational experiences at Salisbury University (SU). The intake appointment is geared toward gathering information to thoroughly assess the student’s academic and social needs, as well as to identify/discuss on and off campus resources.
Resource Counseling is a support service for students registered with the DRC who want to improve their academic and self-management skills, such as time management, organization and study skills. We offer this support to help students achieve their academic goals along with self-advocacy and independence. The content and structure of each individual coaching session is determined cooperatively by the student and DRC staff.
Skill-building groups are open to students registered with the DRC who want to learn and/or improve their various academic and social kills alongside their peers. Please contact the DRC for additional information on dates/times of groups.
Assistive technology (AT) is defined as devices, hardware, software and/or services that lessen or remove barriers faced by individuals with disabilities. AT training is available to students registered with the DRC. For questions about available assistive technology, please contact the DRC.
We have drop-in hours on Tuesdays 3-4 p.m. and Fridays 10-11 a.m. If your needs extend beyond a 10-15 minute drop-in consultation appointment, please contact us at 410-543-6087 to schedule a resource counseling appointment.
