Welcome!

The University of New Hampshire and Disability Services for Students take great pride in promoting the development of student self-reliance and the personal independence necessary to succeed in a university climate. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on a basis of ability, not disability.

The University of New Hampshire believes that students have the right and also the responsibility to determine whether or not to use support services. In keeping with this objective, students are expected and encouraged to utilize the resources of Disability Services for Students to the degree they determine necessary.

We invite you to connect with us to learn first hand about the variety of options available to students with disabilities. If at any time you cannot access forms or pages on this site, and need to request an accessible format, please email disability.office@unh.edu, and we will provide you with the accessible format.

Mike Griswold

The social impact of a summer camp for youth with Tourette Syndrome

Mike Griswold, recent M.S. in Recreation Management graduate, and Former G.A. in the Graduate School, successfully presented his research down at the ACA National conference in Florida this month. His research focused on the social impact of a summer camp for youth with Tourette Syndrome. This was incredible opportunity for Mike to present his research to a public forum. The experience was capped off with Mike becoming nationally recognized as the recipient for the Marge Scanlin Award for Outstanding Research by a student.

We could not be more proud of Mike and of his Department of Recreation Management, which has a long standing record of outstanding work, including scholarship, on the role of recreation in enhancing the lives of people with disabilities.

You can find Mike’s published abstract issued by the ACA at this link (see page 29 for his study): http://www.acacamps.org/sites/default/files/images/research/symposium/2014_National_Research_Forum_Book_of_Abstracts_Final.pdf

Breaking Barriers

 

Most Boston Marathon runners check thier progress by the mile markers.  For the past 2 years Josh Crary has not seen a single mile marker along the legendary 26.2 mile route.  Born with Choroideremia (CHM), a rare, inherited eye disorder that causes retinal deterioration and blindness, Josh Crary, a graduate of UNH, faces life's challenges with enthusiasm and shares his perspectives on growing up with a disability (retrieved from http://www.visionaware.org/my_story_josh_crary ).  Josh attended graduate school in Boston and has been hired at the Berklee School of Music as the Diversity Programs Advisor.  He has a great love for music and love of the blues!http://vimeo.com/36227444  .
