How to survive law school without losing your mind: DRES - Disability Resources

Resources for creating school - life balance

Disability Resources & Educational Services

While DRES has a longstanding national reputation for providing accommodations and an accessible campus for students with visible disabilities since 1948, we have also been providing outstanding services to students with nonvisible disabilities for more than 25 years.

These include:

  • Having a learning disability specialist on staff who works with students on compensatory strategies in test preparation, test taking, reading comprehension, and written expression; and
  • Four licensed clinical psychologists (three as access specialists and one as a clinical counselor) and other mental health professionals who are on staff to provide supports and services given the large growth in the number of students with ADHD, acquired brain injury, autism spectrum disorders, and psychiatric disabilities.

DRES provides students with academic accommodations and access.  We also provide support services including academic skills/strategies training, case management, and coaching for organization, time management, structure, prioritizing, and motivation.  In addition, students can learn to use various types of assistive technology to help in their academics.
