Disability Resources for Students
We did it as a team
After being accepted to the Evans Master’s Degree Program, I began to wonder how was I ever going to get through the mounds of reading material having recently suffering from Bell’s Palsy with left-sided dry eye syndrome from going through cancer treatment…
Well, I somehow came across the DRS. I believe it was in my registration or enrollment packet. Anyhow, I had a lot of pride and ego that held me back from accepting that I now had a disability. So, with a visit to the DRS office I inquired. The staff was SO gracious and made my visit comfortable. I met with a staff member named Michael. In the interview, Michael explained the different options and resources available for me based on my disability. “WOW!”, I said to myself, “With these DRS services, I CAN get through this Master’s program”!
The live readers, books on CD and the secrete in-class note taker programs were a great help to me.
THANK YOU! UW DRS for “rescuing” this stubborn, prideful 20-year veteran firefighter from his academic woes!! WE DID IT as a team!
May I someday be able to pay forward what you did for me, or in some other manner someday in my future. If a firefighter can do it, so can you!
