Discover Disability Resources at FAU

Welcome!

This resource guide is designed to help anyone whose life is touched by disabilities: students, veterans, seniors, families and friends. Often there are no central locations for this information!

Florida Atlantic University has many services and organizations whose mission it is to serve the disabled. We suggest you start with the Student Accessibility Services office.

Nationally and in our state of Florida there are also organizations, both private and public, who serve the needs of the disabled.
