National Autism Awareness Month
April is National Autism Awareness Month.  Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, speech, and nonverbal communication, repetitive behaviors, as well as by unique strengths and differences.  The number of individuals with ASD continues to rise sharply and is not distinguishable by any physical feature.  In 2012, about 1 in 68 children were identified with ASD, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The Disability Services office is dedicated to promoting advocacy and support, increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism, and provide information to the campus community.  Contact our office for more information.  Visit for additional information.       


Scholarships and Financial Aid for Students with Disabilities

According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 11% of undergraduate students have a disability.  Considering that around 20.2 million students are enrolled at U.S. colleges, an estimated 2 million of them are likely living with some type of a disability.  This may include a visual impairment, a specific learning disability, an orthopedic impairment, hard of hearing/deafness, or a speech disability, among others.  Many of these students receive federal financial aid while some work part-time and/or receive financial assistance from their families to help pay for college.  There are a large number of scholarships for students with disabilities from outside sources.  To assist in this search, Affordable Colleges created a list of the current disability scholarships being offered from various foundations and organizations.  Select scholarships to visit the list.  
Disability Services Overview
The disability services office is always looking for ways to share information to our faculty, staff, and community about our process to include general information.  We are happy to conduct a 5 to 7 minute presentation to your students or your staff/faculty at department meetings.  If you are interested, please submit your request to Maria Botello at  A presentation on disability services was offered as one of the sessions during the All College Meeting.  If you missed that presentation, you may view the power-point here.
