The AccessAbility Center coordinates a variety of reasonable accommodations and services for students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are adjustments to policy, practice and programs that "level the playing field" and allow students to demonstrate their knowledge or perform without the interference of their disability. Accommodations are individualized and determined on a case-by-case basis and may include testing accommodations such as extended time and the ability to take exams in a reduced distraction environment; peer note-taking services; permission to record lectures; printed materials in an alternate format such as large print, electronic, or Braille; assistive technology, and sign language interpreting and speech-to-text services.
Students who register with AAC have access to the Assistive Technology Lab, located in NAC 1/217B, which offers technology for screen reading and magnification, writing support, note-taking, and voice recognition. Training is available.
Registered students receive priority course registration.
A CUNY LEADS Advisor is available to support students with career planning.
AAC counselors are available to meet with students registered with AAC for personal and academic counseling.
A variety of workshops and events are sponsored by AAC throughout the year. Check our events page to find out what is coming up!
