Student Disability Support Office

What is the Student Disability Support Office?

Kyoto University of Advanced Science provides a variety of individualized support options for disabled students so that they can lead a better life on campus. The Support Office for Students with Disabilities provides support for students who have difficulties in attending lectures and practical training, mainly by providing reasonable accommodations in cooperation and consultation with the Health Office, Student Counseling Office, and other related departments such as faculty members.

The term "disability" as used herein refers to persons with a physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities, mental disabilities, or other impairment of mental or physical functions that continuously cause substantial limitations in daily or social life due to physical and social barriers.

"Reasonable accommodations" are individualized adjustments or modifications that allow people with disabilities to learn equally with people without disabilities.

Who is the support coordinator for students with disabilities?

Our staff coordinate various activities within the university to ensure that students get the support that they need without difficulty. Their duties include coordination with faculty members in charge of classes, coordination with departments in charge of facilities and equipment, and acting as an advocate for students with disabilities.

Currently, we have one licensed occupational therapist and mental health worker and one licensed social worker working full-time at the university.
