Disability Resources & Educational Services (DRES)

(217) 333-4603

Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-5:00 pm

At the University of Illinois, students with disabilities can register with Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES). DRES has a proud history of providing accommodations and support services to students with disabilities since 1948, more than 40 years before the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). DRES is often considered the pioneer in providing the “best practices” for accommodations and support services in the college setting.

By registering with DRES, students with disabilities work with an Access Specialist to determine what kinds of classroom accommodations are necessary to ensure equal access to the learning environment (e.g., extended time for test-taking, use of assistive technologies in the classroom, text conversion, physical modifications to the learning environment). Access Specialists also help students to promote their self-advocacy skills in working with instructors to put these accommodations in place.

To become registered with DRES, the process is fairly simple and straightforward, and is outlined on their website. First, students complete a short, online application, and then they submit disability documentation from their provider. After the application and documentation are received and approved, the student is invited to DRES for an orientation session, at which they will develop an accommodations plan as well as decide what support services they may want to use at DRES.

While some college offices of disability services only exist to implement these reasonable and appropriate accommodations (i.e., in order to meet their legal obligations), DRES goes far beyond this legal obligation and provides an array of additional support services to students. As needed, students registered with DRES have access to individual mental health counseling, group therapy, academic coaching, occupational/physical therapy, as well as social and recreational opportunities at DRES. There is typically no cost for these services, and no limit to the number of sessions that students may receive. For students who are not yet registered with DRES, but who believe they may have an undiagnosed disability like ADHD or a learning disability, they may be eligible for a free academic screening and/or neuropsychological testing to determine if registration with DRES is appropriate for them.

Often, people think of disabilities as conditions where a person uses a wheelchair or has a sensory impairment, like being blind or low vision, deaf or hard-of-hearing. Of course, DRES offers services to students with physical and sensory disabilities, but students may also use DRES services for non-visible conditions, like ADHD, anxiety disorders and other psychiatric disabilities, or learning disabilities. In fact, almost 90% of the students who become registered with DRES have non-visible disabilities like ADHD/LD or psychiatric disabilities.

Some of the points of pride of DRES include Beckwith Residential Support Services (BRSS) at DRES. BRSS provides support for first floor residents of Nugent Hall with physical disabilities who require assistance in the performance of basic activities of daily living. In addition to the physical design elements of individual student rooms, all residents of Nugent Hall have access to the newly built dining hall that includes seven food stations and can accommodate up to 1,200 people at time. Finally there is a new cardio equipment room with accessible exercise equipment within the work out space. A Transitional Disability Management Plan (TDMP) is developed between the Beckwith Disability Specialist, resident, and others identified by the student for involvement in the TDMP process. The purpose of the TDMP is to improve each student's management of his/her disability-related needs as it impacts all facets of their life.

Another point of pride is the wheelchair athletics programs at DRES. DRES has taken a national leadership in disability sports which spans more than 60 years and includes a men's wheelchair basketball team, a women's wheelchair basketball team, and a track and field program. The Illinois men's wheelchair basketball team has won 15 national championships and the Illini women have won 14. Illinois wheelchair racers are among the best in the world, and consistently win major international races each year. At the 2016 Rio Paralympics, current and former Illinois students won a total of 20 medals (10 gold, 7 silver, 3 bronze).

Consider contacting DRES today if you have any questions about disability-related services at the University of Illinois! Reach them by email at disability@illinois.edu, or by phone at (217) 333-4603.
