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.
Academic-skill building 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.
Consultation appointments can be scheduled for general questions, accommodation requests, guidance/assistance with the implementation of accommodations/services, linkages to campus resources, etc. To schedule a consultation appointment, please contact the DRC.
Skill-building groups are open to students registered with the DRC who want to learn and/or improve their various academic and social skills alongside their peers. Please contact the DRC for additional information on dates/times of groups.
The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) is an important federal law designed to increase citizens' access to voter registration opportunities. Under the NVRA, the office of disability services is an agency-based voter registration site where voter registration application forms and information are available, and where students will be offered the opportunity to register to vote. For questions, please contact the Disability Resource Center. Voter registration information and application forms are also available at the website for the State Board of Elections of the State of Maryland.
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.
