The McBurney Disability Resource Center is the primary campus resource to provide and coordinate accommodations for UW students with disabilities. McBurney works with students with physical, learning, hearing, vision, psychological, health and other disabilities substantially affecting a major life activity (e.g., walking, communicating, learning, seeing, breathing, reading, etc.). Many students have non-apparent disabilities such as depression, anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, AD/HD and health impairments such as Crohn’s disease or fibromyalgia.
