Henderson Community College uses the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) as a guide to define disability. A condition that substantially limits a major life activity, such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, and learning, is covered under the ADA, making a student eligible for services from DSS. Services can be provided to students who are deaf or hard of hearing, students with learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, chronic health conditions, including but not limited to diabetes, epilepsy, psychiatric disability, etc.
Students with temporary conditions such as a broken arm or leg may also be eligible for services.
