If a student discloses that they have a disability or is requesting academic accommodations refer them to Disability and Testing Services. It is often helpful to e-connect them by sending Disability & Testing Services an e-mail (email@example.com) where the student is copied.
If a professor suspects a student may have a disability and needs services, it is more appropriate to the Care Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be connected with services that can assist them with their difficulties. It is more appropriate to connect students to assistance services to assist them than to tell them you think they have a disability.
If a student has a sudden injury or hospitalization and they are requesting assistance, they should be brought to the attention of the Care Team as well.
