Disability Services

In Higher Education

Disability Service audits provide an in-depth look at a program or component of a program to benchmark it against best practices and provide recommendations for improvement.  This can be in the form of office/program assessments, technology reviews, or other areas in need of in-depth analysis and data to build a business case for resource allocation from your organization.
