It offers statistics on the percentage of full-time freshmen with disabilities and types of disabilities. It describes campus services for students with disabilities, including physical accommodations, copying assistance, enlargement of materials, interpreter services, notetaking services, testing services, textbooks on tape, and others. The module also describes outside resources, such as AHEAD (Association on Higher Education and Disability) and the HEATH Resource Center, and community services, including independent living, financial assistance, reading and referral services, transportation, and national toll free hotlines.
