DISABILITY SUPPORT PROGRAMS AND SERVICES (DSPS)
WELCOME TO dsps
The District's Disability Support Programs and Services provide services and courses to support students with disabilities in the achievement of their academic and vocational goals. This program promotes equal participation in mainstream academic programs through preparatory and skill maintenance courses, and offers courses for personal growth.
The District's Disability Support Programs and Services were established to more fully accommodate the academic and support needs of students with disabilities as mandated by Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Disability Support Programs and Services Departments of the Colleges and Continuing Education offer eligible students access to a variety of specialized support services and assistive equipment in a timely manner. These services are intended to assist students with disabilities to more successfully participate in regular programs and activities.
The District's Disability Support Programs and Services are offered at each of our Colleges and Continuing Education. Our Interpreting Services Office and the District's WorkAbility III program reside at the district office.
WorkAbility III at the San Diego Community College District is a program dedicated to providing vocational services to students with disabilities. The program provides guidance to students and helps them acquire the tools necessary to obtain successful employment. Our goal is to teach students the skills that will help them develop meaningful careers throughout their lives.
