Accessibility Services

NYFA South Beach Accessibility Services provides academic services and accommodations for students with diagnosed learning differences, physical and/or psychiatric disabilities.  Our aim is to minimize as much as possible learning barriers for those students who have documented learning differences or disabilities, as defined under Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, amended as of 2008.  The ADA defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Students are responsible for initiating the accommodations request process by self- disclosing their learning differences or disabilities directly to the Director.  Please know that all requests and materials submitted are handled in the strictest confidence!

To initiate the accommodation request process, please send an email to the Director (maylen.dominguez@nyfa.edu) within the first week of the start of your program, stating your need to register for accessibility services. The registration process for accessibility services begins with a meeting with the Director.
