Laurie Bethka, Learning Resource Specialist
Mary Armstrong, Secretary 

Our role is to assist all qualified students with disabilities in pursuing their educational goals. We attempt to coordinate the students' needs with services and resources available within our college system and in the community.  In order to assist the students, we offer a number of support services.  The purpose of these supports is to provide appropriate accommodations for the student with a disability.

A visit to the college is recommended to all applicants.  Persons with special needs are urged to visit early, preferably the semester before enrollment.  The Admissions Office and Learning Resource Specialist should be contacted for an appointment.

In order to receive accommodations, the student must self-identify, provide appropriate documentation, and request services from the Learning Resource Specialist.  The purpose of accommodations is to provide alternative pathways for learning, receiving and expressing information.  We do not change course content or lower our expectations.  All documentation and information will be kept confidential in accordance with F.E.R.P.A. regulations.




The Learning Resource Specialist's office is located on the
fourth floor of the Moore building (Room 420). 
                                
Office hours are Monday through Friday 8 - 4
Summer hours - Monday through Thursday 8 -4:30, Friday 8 - 1
