Disability Scenarios

The following scenarios represent students with the most common disability situations which you are likely to encounter at Allan Hancock College. They are not meant to be detailed depictions, but rather brief sketches which comment on the major activities of most conventional courses: facilities access, note taking, test taking, and technology. It is hoped that they will give you some insight into how all of us, the student, instructor, and Learning Assistance Program staff, can work together for the academic, vocational, and social success of our students.

Tips for assisting students with various disabilities: 

The student who is quadriplegic 

The student who is deaf

The student who is hard of hearing

The student who has a learning disability

The student who is blind or has low vision

The student who has chronic back pain

The student who has a psychological disability

The student who has a seizure disorder

More detailed descriptions on this topic can be found in the "Faculty Guide for Helping Disabled Students," supplied to each AHC faculty member. Information on laws pertaining to individuals with disabilities, teaching strategies, and forms related to our program can be found there as well.

Another well-developed internet source for postsecondary faculty can be found at the "Faculty Room." The "Faculty Room" at the University of Washington's Do-It Program contains a wealth of resources that address issues related to disabled students.

As always, we are available at any time to assist you regarding disability related issues.

"I believe Hancock is the greatest community college out there for so many reasons. The counselors got me on track, and the instructors go out of their way to help. Because I am doing well in math and science classes for the first time in my life, I will be able to pursue a career as an environmental engineer. I will be able to find viable solutions to real world problems because of my time here."
