ODS October 2011 Newsletter
We're right in the middle of proctoring lots and lots of midterms—so thank you to everyone who turned their Test Accommodations Forms (TAFs) by the October deadline (which is now closed!). Please use this time of year as your own personal yardstick to review how you're doing, what you might do differently, and what types of support will make you the most successful in all of your academic endeavors: meeting more regularly with your teachers; a peer tutor, volunteer notetaker or study group; time management and/or study skills help with ODS LD Coordinator Okie Hrycak; a check-in meeting with either Susan Q or Okie.
Marsteller Internship Update
Congratulations to the FA'11 Marsteller Interns and thanks to everyone who submitted an application to the Marsteller Career Internship Program, named in honor of ODS Founder Julie Marsteller '69, and co-sponsored by ODS and Career Development. Please watch for your invitation to the Marsteller Career Panel in November (date/location TBA) in which past Marsteller grant recipients will talk about their experience with disability in the workplace. Panel to be moderated by OCD Internship Coordinator Valerie Chow and Susan Quinby.
Program Planning and Disability
What have you learned about your disability (so far) both in and out of the classroom this fall? Based on your disability-related needs, are there choices that in retrospect you would have made differently? The answers to these and other questions can be found in the informative ODS brochure, *Program Planning and Disability* available in ODS. As you plan your SP'12 program, please feel free to review this timely handout and schedule a check-in meeting with either Susan Q or Okie. Another idea: send a copy of the brochure to your academic adviser prior to your program planning meeting so that the two of you can have a thoughtful discussion about your most accessible options in the coming term!
