The LAC-DS is excited to share that our accommodation process is going digital! Starting July 1, students will be able to request accommodations (and faculty will be informed of student needs) via an online portal called AIM.
We will still maintain our self-advocacy approach, and we will still expect students and faculty to discuss specific accommodation needs, but this digital model will be more efficient, more reliable, and more streamlined.
You’re going to love it!
Instructions for using AIM will be coming soon, so check back here often. In the meantime, you’re welcome to check things out for yourself. Please remember to use WFU login information.
In light of COVID-19, until further notice all staff at the LACDS will be working remotely. Please call (336-758-5929) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to talk with a member of our staff.
In concert with the mission of the Division of Campus Life, Disability Services within the Learning Assistance Center (LAC-DS) exists to enable students with disabilities to experience equal access to the academic, social, and recreational activities and programs at Wake Forest University. To achieve the goal of “equal access,” the LAC-DS staff works with students, faculty, and staff to implement services and accommodations that are in accordance with both state and federal laws and our own commitment to this goal.
The size of Wake Forest University enables the LAC-DS staff to work in an individual manner with students who choose to disclose disabilities.
Planning a program? Make sure to include an accommodations statement on all advertising materials: “If you need accommodations for this event, please contact (name of event contact) at (email or phone) five business days in advance.”
