Higher Education Support Toolkit


The Higher Education Support Toolkit provides disability service staff and health care staff with a simple way to work with students who are experiencing limitations arising from their psychiatric disability.

Sometimes it only takes a small change to make a dramatic difference in the ability of a student to be optimally engaged in college classes. By helping students to identify the ways in which they are being challenged, disability and support services staff can then direct students to campus resources and discuss strategies for the classroom that meet their particular needs.
