Disability Services Events

Engage with Disability Services

There are a variety of opportunities throughout the year in which Disability Services connects with students, staff, and faculty across the district. We offer resources, training, and support.

Jump to Faculty Sessions or Adaptive Technology Exploration (Livescribe, Read and Write Gold, etc)

Students who are just getting started with Disability Services will need to attend an information session.

Featured Event - Spring Transition Information Night

This spring each of our campuses will host an information night for transitioning high school students and their families. We will have a Disability Services counselor as well as an adaptive technology contact and a panel of current PCC students to provide an overview and answer any questions.
