Disability Services

Disability Services provides a full range of advocacy services to a diverse population of students with disabilities. Disability Services provides support services that enable students with disabilities to fully participate in the life of the academic community. You may use this site to access many of the services available when you cannot come to the BCC campus.

Disability Services also assists other college departments in providing access to services and programs in the most integrated setting possible. We are dedicated to providing all students with access to the equipment and tools necessary to be successful in college. Currently there are more than 600 students with disabilities actively registered with Disability Services, this includes students with psychological disabilities, students with physical disabilities including those who are blind, deaf or hard of hearing, and students with learning disabilities.

Disability Services:

  • Determines classroom accommodations needed by students with learning disabilities on an individual basis.
  • Recommends strategies to capitalize on strengths and to compensate for learning weaknesses.
  • Provides resources to faculty and staff who wish to know more about learning disabilities and good teaching strategies.
  • Screens students referred by faculty and staff for a learning disability (formal testing is done independently, off campus).
