What to Do if You Do Not Qualify for Services
an institution determines that you are not qualified as an
individual with a disability, you may ask for the appeal process.
If you believe you are discriminated against because of your
disability, you may contact the Virginia Office for Protection
and Advocacy. You also may file a complaint with the Department
of Education Office for Civil Rights if you believe that the
institution discriminated against you. The Office of Civil
Rights also provides technical assistance.
