The LBCC Center for Accessibility Resources and YOU!

The Center for Accessibility Resources provides assistance to students who have documented disabilities by:

  • Reviewing documentation, provided by the student, that provides evidence of disability
  • Planning reasonable accommodations
  • Coordinating services in the classroom
  • Providing support (i.e. assistive technology, testing accommodations, and classroom accommodations)
  • Success coaching and advocating

If you have a disability and feel that you will need accommodations as a student at Linn-Benton Community College, we are here to support you.

Students are eligible to use their approved accommodations in every class (traditional lecture, online, Community Education sponsored, etc.), lab, clinical/field experience, club/co-curricular/student life activity, play, Cooperative Work Experience, Learn and Earn, Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Accelerated Short Term Training classes held at, or sponsored by, any Linn-Benton Community College campus.

What is a Disability?

The definition of disability set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 does not distinguish between type, severity, or duration of the disability.

It states: "The term 'disability' means, with respect to an individual, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual; a record of such impairment; or being regarded as having such an impairment."

Please see our sections on How to Get Started and Proving Your Disability for more information.

The Center for Accessibility Resources welcomes questions and recommends students contact the office directly if they are unsure about the documentation guidelines or need help in getting the supporting documentation.
