Can I tell the other professors/instructors about a student and look to them for suggestions?

Specific information about a student's disability is confidential, and cannot be shared without a student's written permission. General information about psychiatric disability, academic adjustments, and classroom strategies can be shared, and issues can be discussed provided the student's anonymity is absolutely protected. Otherwise, refer to Disabilities Services for assistance and refer other instructors there as well.
