Service Animal Needs (1B)
A service animal is an animal that performs tasks for a student to help them overcome limitations resulting from a disability. Some examples of a service animal's duties are: guiding students with impaired vision, alerting students with impaired hearing, providing security or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items. The ADA protects the rights of students with disabilities to be accompanied by their service animals in public places including residence halls and classrooms.
