The Center for Student Disability Services is responsible for
ensuring the successful integration of students with
disabilities into the Brooklyn College community and for
determining what constitutes appropriate, reasonable
accommodations. Students will have access to the center by

Services for students with disabilities registered in the
program include preadmission interviews, priority registration,
individual counseling, auxiliary aids (readers, writers,
laboratory assistants), individual testing accommodations and
arrangements, advocacy, and direct liaison with offices that
provide College services.
The center offers adaptive equipment for studying, taking tests,
tutoring, and other academic activities. A wide variety of
equipment and software is available, including a Dragon dictate
speech-recognition system, a scanner with screen-access
software, a text-to-speech synthesizer, magnification systems,
CCTV systems, seventeen-inch VGA display monitors, braille and
large print keyboards, and a braille printer. Computers allow
many documents to be accessible in alternative formats, such as
braille print or vocalized text.
Adaptive equipment and software are available through the
center's computer lab and its Mamie and Frank Goldstein Resource
Center. For more information call 718.951.5538.
