Students with Disabilities

Students with Disabilities in the Classroom

University Disability Support Services (UDSS) is a campus-wide resource available to faculty, staff, students and visitors to ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided appropriate services and accommodations to allow for access and an equal opportunity to participate and learn.

UDSS strongly encourages you to include a statement in your course syllabi encouraging students with disabilities to identify themselves early in the semester.  A sample statement may be:  

If you have a physical, learning, sensory or psychological disability and require accommodations, please let us know as soon as possible. You will need to register with, and possibly provide documentation of your disability to University Disability Support Services (UDSS) in SEO, room 109 Knight Hall. You may also contact UDSS at (307) 766-6189 or at udss@uwyo.edu. Visit the UDSS website for more information: www.uwyo.edu/udss.

UDSS assumes responsibility of obtaining documentation from students and determining appropriate accommodations then communicating those with facility and staff. Collaboration with faculty most commonly occurs when student accommodations include note and test-taking accommodations, provision of accessible text and course materials, interpreters, transcribers or assistive listening devices, etc. UDSS staff are also available to answer any questions for faculty and staff relating to students who suspect they may have a disability, best practices in the classroom, etc.

The Montgomery Technology Center (MTC), housed within UDSS, provides an alternate computer lab location and various assistive technology and software to assist students with disabilities.
