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:
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

"Allan Hancock College is truly an amazing community college, especially when you give yourself the opportunity to get involved. After returning from overseas as a member of the U.S. Marines, I discovered the agribusiness program at Hancock. The faculty and staff are so helpful and encouraging. The facilities in the new Industrial Technology Complex are top of the line. Hancock is truly a start here, go anywhere campus."
