Counseling & Accessibility Services (CAS) offers support services and academic accommodations for Daytona State students with documented disabilities. We comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
According to these federal laws, students with disabilities "must have a substantial impairment to a major life function in order to receive accommodations." The impairment must be permanent in nature, or for an indeterminate duration. Temporary impairments are not disabilities under the law. CAS determines the types of support services and academic accommodations or adjustments for which a student is eligible to receive. CAS makes determinations based solely on documentation from licensed medical and or mental health professionals, which clearly delineate the limitations resulting from a person's disability.
