Our Top Priority

At Lanier Technical College the quality of your educational experience is our top priority. The Coordinator of Disability Services works to meet the particular needs of students with disabilities including the physically challenged and the learning challenged. Once a student’s medical documentation of his/her disability is received, this office works with faculty and staff to help them meet the student’s needs.

Reasonable Accommodations

It is the policy of Lanier Technical College to make reasonable accommodations that assist people with disabilities as they participate in programs and activities at the college. Reasonable accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis according to each student’s individual medical documentation. Accommodations will be made to the extent that these accommodations do not sacrifice or compromise the integrity of an educational program, lower the academic standards, or produce undue administrative burdens.

What does the Disability Services Office Provide?

This office is responsible for ADA compliance and for providing service and advocacy for students with disabilities. It is the responsibility of the student to disclose information regarding a disability if services are needed. Appropriate medical documentation is required by this office in order to provide suitable and effective accommodation or auxiliary aid for individuals requesting service. The Coordinator of Disability Services is then able to make recommendations, modifications and referrals based on the nature of the disability and how it affects the student’s ability to learn or demonstrate competency in the course of study. Students may be referred to agencies outside the college to gain medical documentation for services. Once a referral is made, it is the responsibility of the student to complete the steps necessary to gain his/her documentation.
