The Garfield campus offers counseling for students with disabilities. You can meet with a DSPS Counselor throughout the semester and they can assist you with working towards your educational goals.


Additionally, the DSPS Counselor can assist with:

  • Finding community resources for various disabilities, for example:
    • Transportation
    • Housing
  • Getting reasonable accommodations in your classes, for example:     
    • Note-taking services
    • Special Equipment
    • Longer time on tests
  • Academic and Career Counseling


Students interested in scheduling an appointment with the DSPS Counselor can go to the Career & Counseling Center (Mariposa Building, Room 221) and ask for an appointment. You can also call 818-240-1000 ext. 5055 or 5035 to schedule.

 If you are a staff or faculty member and have questions about how to refer a student to DSPS, you can speak with the DSPS Counselor who will guide you with this process.
