Accessibility Resources collaborates with the campus community to provide accessible and inclusive college experiences for students with disabilities.
We work with students with a variety of disabilities, including learning disabilities, ADHD, psychological disorders, chronic health conditions, mobility impairments, physical disabilities, brain injuries, autistic spectrum neurodevelopmental disorders, neurological disorders, and sensory disabilities related to vision and hearing. We also support students with temporary medical conditions, such as concussions and other injuries. Additionally, we consult with students who question whether they might have a disability, as well as those who are referred by a faculty or staff member.
We work with students on an individual basis to plan support services, including reasonable accommodations that facilitate access to learning, living, and other experiences at Stonehill. Some of the accommodations used by students include: extended time on exams, a distraction-reduced exam setting, use of computer for note taking, accessible formats of print materials, assistive listening devices, and accessible campus housing. We also partner with and refer to other campus offices including Academic Services & Advising, the Counseling Center, the Center for Writing & Academic Achievement, International Programs, Intercultural Affairs, and the Career Development Center.
Whether you are a new student at Stonehill or a current student just now checking out our resources, we would be happy to talk with you about the services we offer or disabilities and access in general.
