These accommodations are considered on an individual basis determined on the clinical information and by an interactive dialog with the student who has a disability. 

If needed, written descriptions of specific accommodations may be sent to instructors or requested by students. With students' permission, clinical information regarding the disability may also be shared with instructors to help in providing better services. A release of information form must be filled out by the student.
