Information for Faculty and Staff

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) has developed resources for faculty, staff, and university departments to help them aid Virginia Tech students with disabilities.

The first step in supporting students with disabilities is letting them know that you are there to help. The best way to do this is through a statement on your course syllabus letting students know that they may approach you if they need an accommodation. An example of one of these accommodations is using captioned media on videos and films shown during class.

If you received a request for a volunteer note taker in your class, please see information for faculty and staff on the SSD Note-Taking Accommodations page./p>

If you received a request for testing accommodations and need space, please see information for the Werth Testing Center at SSD.

If you have a question or concerns, contact Services for Students with Disabilities at 540-231-3788 or
