Disabled Student Resource Center
25555 Hesperian Blvd.
Hayward, CA. 94545
DSPS at Chabot College serves the needs of students with a variety of disabilities,
including physical, communicative, psychological, and/or learning disabilities.
The specialized counseling staff provides academic,
career, personal and crisis counseling, and offers a variety of Psychology Counseling
courses to assist students with successful transition to and beyond college.
They provide academic assessment, Student Educational Plans, and referrals for
diagnostic evaluations, in addition to help meeting Department
of Rehabilitation requirements.
The DSPS staff also assists with academic accommodations based on individual
student needs (such as additional testing time for students with disabilities),
with community resources (such as special transportation services), and
has a "High Tech Center" that includes adaptive
computer equipment. DSPS promotes awareness of physical and other barriers
to students with disabilities, and works to ensure the college complies
with the national Americans
with Disabilities Act (ADA).
In addition to services located in the Disabled Student Resource Center (DSRC),
DSPS also encompasses the Learning
Skills Program, Computer Applications Systems (CAS) classes, and Adaptive Physical Education at the college. Each spring, DSPS sponsors Disability Awareness Day which draws
the surrounding community to a day of special speakers, an information fair,
a hosted barbecue, and features an annual wheelchair race that promotes a spirit
of cooperation while fostering team competition.
Students are also employed in the Center, and some serve as tutors, readers,
and interpreters. The Able-Disabled Club exists to support the needs of students,
providing social gatherings and activities that also create campus awareness
of the needs of students with disabilities. DSPS offers the campus a challenge:
"Dare To Be Aware!"
