SAS provides a number of services to veterans with disabilities. In addition to providing academic accommodations and physical access to all areas of FAU campuses, we work with each student personally to supply referrals to other FAU support services as well as agencies within the community. We are aware that many veterans have been out of school for a number of years, and we are available to support your transition back into the academic arena. SAS has study skills training available to facilitate a smooth transition back into the classroom and to assist in the development of compensatory skills and strategies. Student Accessibility Services also houses a state of the art assistive technology lab. Hands on training in all types of assistive technology is provided to help students gain independence and prepare for entry into the workforce.
Please feel free to contact Student Accessibility Services at 561-297-3880 for additional information. We look forward to speaking you!
