1. I have a student with a concussion or other injury. Should I refer them to SAS?
Generally, no. Concussions and other injuries do not usually rise to the level of a disability that requires accommodations. However, SAS provides access to a number of technologies and resources that often provide immediate assistance to these students and includes other guidance on its injuries and temporary conditions page. Therefore, please direct your students to this page first.
As you'll note on this webpage, depending on the impact of the condition or if the injured student needs a personal connection, referral to the student's undergraduate dean, one of UDO's case managers, or Peak Performance (if the student is an athlete) may be appropriate. If SAS ends up providing a service to the student (such as administering an exam in its Testing Center) or the student's condition proves more severe or longer lasting, SAS may ask the student to apply and support the student.
