Do you have a permanent disability that affects one or more of your daily life activities? Disabilities may include hearing, mobility or visual impairments, as well as invisible disabilities such as chronic medical conditions (arthritis, cancer, diabetes, kidney disorder, lupus, seizure disorder, TBI, etc.), learning disabilities/ADD, psychiatric disabilities and substance abuse/recovery.
The Office of Disability Services (ODS) also works with students with temporary disabilities (illness, injury or hospitalization of more than two weeks duration) where academic accommodation or assistance may be needed. Please note that after matriculation, the Barnard Primary Care Health Service in Lower Level Brooks (212/854-2091) should be notified of your temporary disability prior to contacting ODS. Please refer to the ODS brochure, Assisting Students with Temporary Disabilities, which is available at www.barnard.edu/ods.
