Karl Laves, Counseling & Testing Center Assistant Director
First and foremost, a good resource would be the Office for Students with Disabilities
now under the leadership of Matt Davis. Their web address is http://www.wku.edu/Dept/Support/Legal/EOO/adastu.html
The Counseling & Testing Center web site is also a good resource for faculty to look over if they have questions or concerns about students with disabilities.
