The Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, ensures that individuals with disabilities are able to participate in all programs and services offered by entities receiving federal assistance.

Florida Gulf Coast University, under the guidelines of federal legislation, provides access to activities, programs and services to students, faculty, staff and guests with disabilities.

It is the policy of Adaptive Services to exist under the premise of Florida Gulf Coast University and its mission. FGCU promotes diversity and stresses the importance of learned knowledge and service to the community by providing services and accommodations to individuals who have a documented disabling condition, which could have adverse effects for the individual while attending FGCU. Individuals with a documented condition will be provided services and accommodations that will supplement their learning styles and aid them in becoming academically, professionally and personally successful. Adaptive Services also promotes self-advocacy and each individual receiving assistance will be guided to become more independent and successful learners.
