Special Resources Office
The Special Resources Office (SRO) is located in the Student Services Building at York Technical College (across from the Financial Aid and Admissions offices).
The SRO coordinates services and accommodations for students with documented disabilities. These services provide equal educational opportunities to students by minimizing the impact of functional limitations on academic pursuits. Students seeking services and accommodations must:
- self-identify at the SRO, - provide appropriate documentation of disability, and -specify accommodation needs and requests.
(An "information packet" of intake materials is available in the SRO.) After review of documentation and an intake interview with the student, reasonable academic adjustments (accommodations) are determined. Adjustments will be flexible, meeting the needs of various disabilities, and are consistent with the documentation provided, without fundamentally altering the academic standards of the course/program. Requests for adjustments should be made in a timely manner (preferably with a two-week notice) dependent upon the nature of the request.
LEAP (Learning Enhanced Achievement Program) is devoted specifically to students with "hidden" disabilities, such as learning disabilites and psychiatric/psychologial disorders. Contact: Linda Emerson, 803-325-2894.
