It is suggested that, in the beginning of the semester, instructors make a verbal announcement such as the one listed below:
“Penn State University welcomes students with disabilities into the University's educational programs. If anyone in this course has a disability, please contact Diana Kreydt at the Office for Student Disability Resources located in 244 Swift Building or call 372-3037. If you have further questions regarding this announcement, please make an appointment during my office hours.”
Another suggestion is to put a general statement in the course syllabus. The suggested OSDR Course Syllabus Statement is as follows:
Note to Students with Disabilities

If you have a disability-related need for modifications or reasonable accommodations in this course, please contact The Office for Student Disability Resources, Diana Kreydt, 244 Swift Building, at 372-3037 or [email protected].
