Chaffey College DPS extends to individuals with developmental, learning, physical, psychological disabilities the opportunity to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for increased self-actualization and independence. These skills may also be used to gain a college degree or for vocational development leading to employment.
Disability Programs and Services has been designed to respond on an individual basis to the needs of Chaffey College students with disabilities that are eligible for services and serve them in accordance with Title 5 Regulations. The aim is to intervene when a developmental, learning, physical, and/or psychological limitation interferes with the instructional process provided by the College. This allows students an equal opportunity to the same quality education as any other student. With the growing awareness on the part of all people regarding human rights and equal access, all students need to understand that it is ability not disability that counts.
