As a student you do not have to disclose your disability. The faculty member may not ask you to disclose your disability. The Accommodation Plan notes the accommodations needed, not the disability. If you choose to conference with the faculty member it is your choice whether or not to disclose your disability.
Accommodations are unique to each student with a disability. They may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Note: Furniture and equipment placed in classrooms/labs is for use by the disAbility Services student. Do not allow other students/faculty to remove or rearrange these items from the designated area.

Please note: If you are granted extended test time as an accommodation you must allow this much time to complete your exam in compliance with Testing Center hours. Plan your testing times carefully with your instructor and the Amarillo College Testing Center.
Testing arrangements may be made to allow the appropriate testing accommodations noted on the Accommodation Plan. As in all situations, testing arrangements should begin with a conversation between the student and the faculty member.
Accommodations, such as extended test time also apply to tests administered on-line. In other words, if a student needs longer to read/process/etc. material in the classroom testing situation he/she needs this in an on-line situation as well. Students with disabilities should not be penalized in any way for needing this accommodation or required to come to campus to meet accommodation needs.
Students with disabilities will generally be advised initially through disAbility Services. Students will also be referred to the Divisional Advisors and Faculty Members.
