Please find information about requesting accommodations for a CTY Family Academic Program below. CTY's Family Academic Programs offer all CTY Talent Search participants a variety of opportunities to engage in enriching and informative activities with their families.
The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth encourages qualified persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you or another attendee of a CTY Family Academic Program anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided for a particular Family Academic Program, be sure to contact CTY Disability Services in advance of your participation or visit.
Even if you are not requesting formal accommodations, you may also contact CTY Disability Services to discuss an individual's condition and any information you wish Family Academic Programs staff and staff at events to be aware of related to the condition . This information can often better help CTY staff support individuals participating in our programs.
You can contact CTY Disabilities Services at:
410-735-6215 or email@example.com
in order to discuss any needs in the context of the Family Academic Program you are planning to attend. The privacy rights of each individual are honored to the fullest extent possible. Please note this email and voicemail are checked regularly, but you will be directed to leave a message. Your call or email will typically be returned within 48 business hours.
Please call the above number or email the above address prior to beginning any program and as soon as possible, even if you are requesting accommodations for your child and he or she has received these accommodations in a past CTY program, or was evaluated by CTY’s Diagnostic and Counseling Center. Information of this nature is privileged and is not shared between departments at CTY without your written release.
For reasonable accommodations to be provided, current documentation from a qualified individual knowledgeable about the student’s disability may need to be submitted to our office within the designated time frame. You can find further guidelines regarding documentation on the Documentation Guidelines page.
When you contact CTY Disability Services, staff will also be able to answer your questions regarding documentation required for your child’s disability and the accommodations requested.
Costs for personal attendants, personally prescribed devices, or services which involve travel and other expenses are typically the responsibility of the student’s family.
If you have urgent questions regarding accommodations for your child, please feel free to contact Melissa Kistler directly at 410-735-6206 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We are so grateful to CTY for providing an environment where our son can be adequately challenged academically and at the same time feel like an accepted part of a social group.”
