Handbook for Provision of Services for Students with Disabilities in the Florida Community College System.
Florida State Board of Community Colleges, Tallahassee.
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, state that no individual with a disability shall be excluded from participation or denied benefits from services or programs of a public entity on the basis of having a disability. The twenty-eight Florida community colleges hold a commitment to this law and make it their mission to maintain a high quality of education for students of all backgrounds. This handbook was created to help coordinators be more creative, informed, committed, and enabled to serve such students. Areas discussed are: (1) disability categories and suggested diagnosticians; (2) handling requests for accommodations and resolving student complaints; (3) substitution policies; (4) record keeping and annual reporting; (5) adaptive technology; (6) interagency agreements and resources for additional support; (7) key community college and university contacts; (8) support services by college and disability category; and (9) relevant laws, rules, and regulations.
