Definition of “Disability”
As stated in the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA), a disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. This includes people who have a record of such an impairment, even if they do not currently have a disability.
General examples of disability categories include, but are not limited to:
- Learning challenges
- Cognitive issues (e.g., ADHD, traumatic brain injury)
- Hearing or vision loss/impairment
- Mobility difficulties
Types of Accommodations
Accommodations are personalized to meet the needs of each student based on the information specified in their current, verifiable medical documentation.
Examples of accommodations include but are not limited to:
- Extended time for exams and quizzes
- Note taking support
- Distraction reduced testing environment
Any accommodation granted by UCLA is strictly for activities within the control of UCLA and may or may not be honored by other agencies, such as NREMT, or hospitals/EMS agencies with whom the student performs a clinical or field rotation.
