Information for Students with Disabilities

Mission Statement
Med-Life Institute will provide reasonable accommodations to qualified students with properly documented disabilities. Documentation must be in writing and must be current. Three to five years is the outside limit for learning disabilities. Psychiatric disabilities should be documented yearly. Documentation must be provided by an appropriately credentialed professional—a licensed primary care provider for physical disabilities, a psychologist with training in the learning disabilities of adults and adolescents for learning disabilities, a mental health provider licensed to diagnose psychiatric disabilities. The specific content of the documentation will vary with the nature of the student’s disability, but in all cases it should include a diagnosis, justification, recommendations, and a clear rationale for the recommendations. The student will sign a release allowing the disabilities specialist to inform the professors of the accommodations to which the student is entitled, and to discuss their implementation. The student is responsible for reviewing and arranging for accommodations with the disabilities specialist and the professors. Faculty should consult with the disabilities specialist (Student Services) before making any accommodations requested by students
The Office for Students with Disabilities is committed to the fulfillment of equal educational opportunity, autonomy, and full inclusion for students with disabilities.

Purpose
The Office for Students exists to determine and ensure reasonable and appropriate accommodations and modifications for qualified students with documented disabilities, to assist students in self-advocacy, to educate the Valencia community about disabilities, and to ensure compliance with the ADAAA, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
