Disability Support offices in higher education help level the playing field for students with documented disabilities attending college by offering accommodation tools, advocacy, support services like tutoring, support groups, supportive counseling, etc. 

But, what about the struggling student who has no formal diagnosis?

Join this webinar to discuss:

•   The role of an Office for Disability Services at a postsecondary institution (community college, college, and/or university).

•   Explore how one college’s Disability Support Services (at Northwestern Michigan College) has looked broader than just students with diagnosed disabilities to offer supportive services for struggling students through campus collaboration and specialized screenings.
