Disability Services

Disability and Counseling Services offer a wide range of services and resources for students. We provide counseling, coaching, advising, support, programs and resources to help students overcome obstacles, build confidence, self-advocate and attain success. We help students engage in courses, programs, services and activities at CF.

We are committed to providing equal educational opportunity and full participation in all college activities, programs, and services for students. The college fully supports and ensures compliance of the Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA, of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and all other pertinent federal, state, and local disability anti-discrimination laws. Our services include, but are not limited to, appropriate classroom and testing accommodations; academic, career, and personal coaching; sign language interpreters; adapted computer access; and cultural programming.

Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services. Accommodations are custom designed to meet the needs of the student; they may relate to physical access, auxiliary learning aids or programmatic and classroom academic adjustments. Auxiliary learning aids may include American Sign Language interpreters, scribes, audio textbooks from Learning Ally, CCTV, and various adaptive hardware and software including large screen monitors and computers with enlarging software, screen reading software and dictation software. Academic adjustments may consist of testing modifications and/or course substitution.

The Office of Disability Services is located in the Bryant Student Union, Room 204, on the Ocala Campus. For more information, visit the Disability Services office, email access@cf.edu or call 352-854-2322, ext. 1209, 1523 or 1580. Arrangements can be made to meet with students at any of the college’s locations.
