DisABILITY Resources Toolbox (DART)

Information and guidance for psychology faculty, administrators and internship directors.


APA's Disability Issues Office has developed this DisABILITY Resources Toolbox (DART) as a central location replete with information and tools psychology training directors and faculty can use to better support students with disabilities. Partly as a result of federal legislation, such as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), students with disabilities are pursuing higher education in increasing numbers. The number of students with disabilities enrolled in graduate psychology programs, in particular, continues to grow. Both psychology faculty and students have expressed the need for information about legal issues, accommodation strategies and resources for working with students who have disabilities.

By visiting each toolkit, you will gain a better understanding of your legal obligations, learn about typical accommodation strategies, improve communication skills and become aware of disability-related data, statistics and available resources.

Please check back again and often as new toolkits will be added continuously.
