Like others, we can't require the specific text below, but there is an expectation that some notification is included in the syllabus (URL: https://oae.stanford.edu/faculty-teaching-staff/syllabus-statement):

Students with Documented Disabilities

Students who may need an academic accommodation based on the impact of a disability must initiate the request with the Office of Accessible Education (OAE).  Professional staff will evaluate the request with required documentation, recommend reasonable accommodations,
and prepare an Accommodation Letter for faculty dated in the current quarter in which the request is being made. Students should contact the OAE as soon as possible since timely notice is needed to coordinate accommodations.  The OAE is located at 563 Salvatierra
Walk (phone: 723-1066, URL: http://oae.stanford.edu).

A bit wordy, but as with many things, it's a work in progress...

Take care,

I was wondering if anyone has a statement about disabilities services that goes in every syllabus on your campus. If so, would anyone be willing to send me their statement as a jumping off point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
