  • Intakes and any other appointments will be available by Zoom or phone and can be scheduled during business hours from 8:30am to 5pm.

SDS is continuing to work with registered SDS students to ensure that the transition to remote classes is effective. This process will involve many changes in a short amount of time and there are some things you can do to make sure your needs are addressed:

  • SDS has been collaborating with instructional design staff in providing guidance around accommodations to those assisting with setting up the remote courses as well as to all faculty who currently have students using accommodations.
  • With the move to remote course delivery, there may be a learning curve for new technologies as well as potential new challenges in delivering accommodations; please reach out to SDS to talk things through, report problems and let us know if you need additional accommodations or support.

Students may discover that accommodations are needed for the first time due to the change to remote classes. Please contact Jenny Eddinger at Jeddinger@jhu.edu or soe.disabilityservices@jhu.edu to get started with the SDS registration process. Any appointments or meetings with the SDS office such as intake interviews will happen remotely or by phone. If you need additional support during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out so that SDS can assist you in sorting out any disability related concerns and connecting to appropriate local resources. You can also find resources and updated information on the university’s operations and response on our Hub COVID-19 Information Page We wish you all the best in the coming weeks!
