DSS Counselors offer students with disabilities specialized counseling and guidance to assist with coordinating accommodations, decision-making and educational planning. Counseling is available by appointment or by drop-in.
How to Schedule a Counseling Appointment
Disability Management: DSS Counselors coordinate necessary support services, recommend accommodations and serve as a resource to help students obtain appropriate services beyond those provided at DVC.
Academic Advising: DSS Counselors are available to assist students with individual academic advising and educational planning.
Personal Counseling: Counseling for personal situations, impacting students' ability to succeed in college, is available through DSS. If in-depth counseling appears to be indicated, the staff are able to refer the student to outside agencies or counselors.
Career Counseling: Counseling related to career choice and decision-making is available to students. A specific section of Career Counseling (Carer 110) is targeted to students with disabilities and is offered almost every semester.
