DREAM- Disability Resources, Education, & Access Management

DREAM provides accommodation for students with both temporary and permanent disabilities.  Many of the students we serve present with:

  • Chronic Health Impairments: Lupus, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, IBS
  • Psychiatric Disorders: Bi-polar, Generalized Anxiety, Chronic Depression
  • Cognitive: Learning Disability, ADHD, High-Functioning Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Physical: Vision, Hearing, & Mobility Impairments
  • Temporary Disabilities: Broken Bones, Pre-Post Surgical, Hospitalizations, and Mental Health conditions, such as Depression or Anxiety, that require extended treatment, but are expected to fully resolve without recurrence.

This list is not exhaustive.  If your student exhibits any symptoms of these or other conditions, please contact us to learn the process for requesting accommodation.  Accommodations can be provided in both academics and in student life.  Please do not wait until a time of crisis to contact us.  It is always best to arrange for accommodations in advance so that these adjustments are available when needed.  It is much more difficult for your student to recover academically if accommodations are arranged after their academics have suffered.

Many chronic disability conditions manifest in the 18-to-25 age range.  DREAM is available for consultation at any time.  If you are concerned about how your student’s health will affect their academics or experience at Gonzaga, please contact us:
