Florida State University is committed to providing a quality education to all qualified students and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability. The Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) was established to serve as an advocate for FSU students with disabilities and ensure that reasonable accommodations are provided.

As a primary advocate for students with disabilities, the SDRC works with faculty and staff to provide accommodations for the unique needs of students both in and out of the classroom.

By providing support services at no cost to students with disabilities, the Student Disability Resource Center offers an opportunity for students to achieve their academic and personal goals.

Transitioning from High School to College

If you are a high school student preparing to enter FSU as a freshman, please take a look at our new Transitioning to College feature.

The SDRC Mentor Program

Volunteering for the SDRC Mentor Program is a great way for students to build leadership skills, promote community, and aid fellow SDRC students. Mentors serve as a valuable resource to new SDRC students who may be unfamiliar with the SDRC policies and procedures, student accommodations, or the FSU Campus. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee or would like more information about the program please contact Peace Diaab, Mentor Program Coordinator at pdiaab@fsu.edu or call (562) 477-2548. You can also reach the SDRC at sdrc@admin.fsu.edu.

Coping Groups

Are you a student with ADHD or Asperger's Syndrome?
Would you like to learn some new ways to overcome challenges and meet other students who are similar to you?

The Student Disability Resource Center offers groups to help students learn more effective ways of coping with ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. Groups meet weekly - eight times a semester - for ninety minutes. Please send an email to Disabilitycounseling@fsu.edu or contact either Martha or Tim to express your interest."

The purpose of these groups is to offer new techniques and strategies for managing ADHD or Asperger's Syndrome while in college. Students who have previously participated in these groups have found it useful to learn from other student's knowledge, verbalize challenges related to ADHD or Asperger's Syndrome, and feel supported by others.

    Topics covered in the Coping Groups include:
  • Stress Reduction and Self-Management Strategies
  • Career Decision Making
  • Self-Advocacy and Assertiveness
  • Goal Setting
  • Time Management
  • Verbal Communication and Interaction Skills
  • Social Judgments

If you are interested in joining a group or want more information, please email Disabilitycounseling@fsu.edu or call (850) 644 - 9566 to speak with a staff person at the Student Disability Resource Center. Contact us soon as availability for both groups is limited. We look forward to seeing you!

Counseling services are offered by supervised doctoral and masters level students. In summer 2013 Individual Counseling services will be available.
