Advising Students with Disabilities Community

Members in this group seek to raise awareness of the legal and ethical responsibilities of institutions of higher education for the students with disabilities who attend institutions of higher education. It serves as a resource by providing models for administrators, faculty, and staff whose primary responsibility is providing advising services for students with disabilities. The community seeks to establish standards of good practice in such areas as protection of privacy, documentation of disability, and determination of reasonable accommodation. It maintains an e-mail list through NACADA and hopes to produce an advising manual.
