Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Miami University and the School Psychology Program support and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Accommodations in instructional and/or assessment methods are available in the program for individuals with documented disabilities. Faculty will consider accommodations on a case-by-case basis for individuals whose disabilities require alterations in methods in order to achieve and/or demonstrate the knowledge and skills needed to fulfill program requirements and become successful school psychologists. In order to assure the preparation of individuals who are competent to perform the role and functions of school psychologists, accommodations cannot include the elimination of program objectives, requirements, and expectancies, or deviations that, in the view of the faculty, would be inconsistent with what is typically expected of practicing school psychologists. Please contact the Office of Disability Resources (www.units.miamioh.edu/oeeo/odr) or the director of the School Psychology Program if you have a disability that requires special accommodations or if you wish to inquire about university services for students with disabilities.
