Accessibility and Accommodations

Your Needs and the KU Writing Center

As our diversity statement indicates, we welcome all writers in the KU community. Although our consultants do not currently receive formal training in disability accomodations, their continuing consultant development training prepares them to meet the needs of all writers - including writers with physical, sensory, mental health, developmental, and learning disabilities.

If there are any accomodations we can provide in order to better facilitate your learning during a consultation or improve your experience in the writing center, just let us know. Unless otherwise indicated below, accomodations do not require documentation from Student Access Services. Potential accomodations include, but are not limited to:

  • Conducting your consultation in an area with reduced distractions.
  • Welcoming service animals into the Writing Center.
  • Working with American Sign Language interpreters (the AAAC asks for requests 5 business days in advance using this form. If a request is made with less notice, every effort to arrange services will be made, but the AAAC cannot guarantee service provision on short notice).
  • Meeting at hight-adjustable tables to accommodate wheelchairs.
  • Use of assistive technology during consultations.
  • We are also happy to work with you and your Access Specialist to book repeat appointments with the same consultant more than 10 days in advance if you have documentation with the AAAC-SAS.

To let us know about any of these needs, you can call us at 785-864-2399, send us an email, or indicate your requests in your appointment form.
