Differently Abled Students

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), “disability” is “having a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities.” Lasell College accepts the definition of learning disabilities defined in Public Law 94-142, "as a disorder in one or more of the basic processes involved in understanding and using language, spoken or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do mathematical calculations."

Lasell College ensures FERPA compliance, and therefore all documentation submitted to the AAC will remain confidential. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with AAC regarding any learning disability, and it is up to the student to continue the accommodation process by communicating his/her needs to the faculty. Lasell recognizes the right of the student to determine who receives learning disability-related information, as well as the right to confidentiality.

Cases are reviewed and accommodations are determined on an individual basis, facilitated by the AAC Director, making use of comprehensive disability documentation as well as confidential consultation with the student. Students must submit documentation and meet with the AAC Director to discuss learning needs and challenges, as well as initiate/update paperwork at the beginning of each academic semester in order to ensure that needs are addressed appropriately. It is then the responsibility of the student to communicate with faculty regarding individual learning needs.

Lasell College, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, provides reasonable accommodations for eligible students with documented disabilities to afford equal access to educational programs and services. Reasonable academic accommodations are determined on an individual basis, facilitated by the Director of the Academic Achievement Center (AAC), using comprehensive learning disability documentation as well as confidential consultation with the student.

The determined accommodations may differ from those previously provided to a student, as they must appropriately address the current impact of the disability on the student’s performance and the anticipated functional impact within a collegiate setting. Accommodations may therefore vary among students with similar disabilities and/or learning profiles. Lasell College provides appropriate and reasonable accommodations to ensure that no student is discriminated against on the basis of his/her disability.
