Special Resource Center

 

The Special Resource Center facilitates academic success for students with disabilities by providing equal access to educational opportunities in an integrated campus setting.

The Special Resource Center's (SRC) primary goal is to provide the accommodations necessary to assist students with achieving their educational and vocational goals, while promoting self-advocacy and independent learning. The SRC provides:

  • Support services
  • Accommodations for academic college activities
  • Adaptive equipment and computer technology
  • Assistive technology training
  • Specialized instruction to serve students with verified disabilities

Our office promotes shared responsibility with the student, professor, and college staff for student success. Students with disabilities are an integral and vital part of the El Camino College community.

How We Can Help

To maintain the health of our community and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Special Resource Center is supporting students by online chat, phone, and email.
