Disability Resources

Each year, Dr. Sears is on campus / at work from the end of August through the end of June.

In July and August, Dr. Sears is on break, but she checks email twice a week.

To minimize chances of delayed response time, please send disability-related inquiries and documentation when her office is still open / before the end of June if possible.

To inquire about disability services, please e-mail Dr. Lou Ann Sears at los3@pitt.edu.

If you require classroom accommodations and are already registered for disability services at Pitt-Greensburg, please e-mail Dr. Sears (los3@pitt.edu) the Permission Notice.

Dr. Sears will be happy to e-mail you another copy of this form if you no longer have the disability-services packet she initially sent you.

Disability Guideline Sheets

If you have an IEP that includes test scores and substantiates the requested accommodations, Learning Resources Center will look at it. If the IEP does not have test scores and does not substantiate the requested accommodations, you will be asked to provide additional documentation. See guideline sheets below.

Below is a list of Disability Guideline Sheets available.
