Disability Services (NOEL Program)

The Noel Center for Disability Services provides support services to deaf, blind, learning disabled, and other students with documented disabilities. In order to assess each student’s needs and to provide the necessary support services, current professional documentation of a disability or disabilities must be furnished. Upon acceptance to the University, documentation should be sent to the Noel Center for Disability Services. Documentation must be furnished no later than three weeks prior to the beginning of services. Each student is assigned a disability specialist who will work with the student throughout his or her time at Gardner-Webb. Some of the accommodations/services that may be provided if the student has supportive documentation include notetakers, extended-time testing, materials in alternative format, lab assistants, interpreters, orientation and mobility training and use of adaptive technology. The student may also receive help in developing effective study skills and organizational and test-taking strategies.
