While DASS is the primary resource for SMU students with disabilities, we are aware that there are other places SMU students with disabilities may find help and support. DASS has compiled a list of resources that are on campus and off campus including websites that offer general information about disabilities, disability-specific information, financial aid information, career resources, and assistive technologies and information.
For general information (prevelance, symptoms, strengths, etc) about learning disabilities and ADHD please look at our information sheets: Learning Disability and ADHD. In addition to general information, we have created a document discussing and dispelling several myths about these disabilities.
In order for students to have equal access to their education, there are responsibilities of the University, the DASS office, the student, and the faculty member and corresponding department or school. Here you'll find a a non-exhaustive list of some roles and responsibilities of each entity.
