THIS IS A PAST EVENT.

Supporting Students with Psychiatric Disabilities

Facilitator: Ashley Heffner, Center for Learning, Access, and Student Success (CLASS)

During this session you will learn about the most common psychiatric disabilities at WFU (e.g., anxiety, depression) and how this may impact a student's ability to learn in your classroom. Accommodations for psychiatric disabilities will be reviewed and you will learn how to share resources with students, such as requesting accommodations with the CLASS office, UCC, and CARE Team resources. You will also have time to share your experiences working with students with psychiatric disabilities and how it may influence course design and pedagogy. Finally, elements of Universal Design will be discussed so that you can accommodate all students with and without approved accommodations.
