Welcome to Disability Services

Beginning spring 2019, the director is now Dawn Lesperance, who also oversees e-Learning Services and the LCSC Testing Center. Robin VanSickle is the new accessibility specialist and after a summer renovation, they will be located within the Testing Center in the Library. The new Disability Services office number is 208-792-2677.  Fax number 208-792-2143.

The Student Counseling Center will no longer oversee Disability Services. Doug Steele and Heidi Benjamin will remain in the Student Counseling Center.  During Summer 2019, Student Counseling Center is relocating.  Please visit their website for their new location and hours.

Who is eligible for Disability Services?

If you have a diagnosed disability and are enrolled at LCSC, you may be eligible for services through the LCSC Disability Services office.  

LCSC is dedicated to providing equal access through a welcoming and inclusive environment for individuals with disabilities and complies with the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Discrimination on the basis of a disability is prohibited. LCSC provides reasonable accommodations to otherwise qualified disabled students in all college programs and activities and strives to maintain access to all aspects of a student’s education experience. No student shall be retaliated against for seeking accommodation under this policy or for participating in any grievance procedures brought against the university because of alleged noncompliance with the policy. 

How do I get services?

To set up an appointment call (208) 792-2677.  Paperwork can be completed online or at the appointment. Bring appropriate documentation, if available, to the appointment.

LCSC students who are not located in Lewiston and take classes online can still utilize the LCSC Disability Services office.  Please contact our office to make arrangements.  

LCSC students at our Coeur d'Alene Center on the North Idaho College campus should contact the NIC Disability Support Services office. 

What documentation is needed?

Documentation that addresses what your disability is, how it impacts you, assistive devices or services, and the credentials of the diagnosing professional.  Please bring all available documentation to your appointment with Disability Services.
