Office for Students With Disabilities: Faculty Resources

OSD staff are strongly committed to support the faculty and to assist in the smooth delivery of courses here at AVC.  If instructors ever have any questions regarding an appropriate support service for a particular student, or have any questions in general, please call us.  We enjoy working with the faculty and take pleasure in assisting our students so they are able to attain their educational goals.  Thank you very much.

OSD does not routinely notify instructors if they will be having a student with a disability in their class.  It is important that disabled students learn to communicate directly with the instructor so as to express their needs and to establish a working relationship.  OSD does notify some instructors regarding a student's special needs, only with the student's permission.

Here are some forms faculty are likely to be presented with from a student with a disability:
