Resolving Issues with Your Accommodations

What To Do if You Encounter a Problem with Your Accommodations

While attending UC Davis, you may have concerns related to disability-based services. These concerns might pertain to person(s) or situations outside the SDC or within the SDC. If this should happen, there are some things to keep in mind.

  • It is important to deal with problems as they arise. Do not delay, as that only allows small problems to become bigger! If you're not sure what to do, contact your Specialist to discuss further.

  • If you have a problem with a particular individual, discuss the problem with that person first. Your Specialist can offer helpful suggestions since problems often can be solved informally through effective communication.

  • If you have a problem with the implementation of your accommodations, please talk with the person(s) facilitating those accommodations first. For example, if you are using a reader and she/he reads too slowly, explain this to the reader!

  • If your professor is questioning the appropriateness of an SDC recommended accommodation, discuss it with him/her first. If you are still unable to resolve the issue, let your Specialist know. Clarification and/or suggestions on how to proceed can be provided. If necessary, your Specialist can work directly with the professor to resolve the particular question.
