§ 56001. Definitions.
For purposes of this subchapter the following definitions shall apply:
(a) Academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and services: Academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and services, as used in this subchapter are any one or more of the services provided to DSPS students described in Section 56026 and/or educational assistance class instruction authorized under Section 56028.
(b) Fundamental Alteration: A fundamental alteration means any change to a course curriculum or course of study that is so significant that it alters the required objectives or content of the curriculum in the approved course outline of the course.
(c) Educational Limitation: An educational limitation means a disability related functional limitation in the educational setting. This occurs when the limitation prevents the student from having full access to and equal participation in the educational process including classes, activities, or services offered by the college to students without disabilities, without specific additional academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, services and/or instruction.
(d) Educational Assistance Classes: educational assistance classes are instructional activities offered consistent with the provisions of Section 56000 designed to address the educational limitations of students with disabilities who are admitted to the institution pursuant to Educational Code Sections 76000 et seq. and who would be unable to substantially benefit from general college classes even with appropriate academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and services. This term replaces Special Classes, as used throughout Division 6 of Title 5.

(f) Academic Accommodation Plan: The Academic Accommodation Plan (AAP) is a record of the interactive process between each DSPS student and a DSPS professional staff member regarding the academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, services and/or instruction necessary to provide the student equal access to the educational process.
