ASP Spotlight
Kaitlin Daine

Kaitlin Daine is a third year ASP with Adaptive Educational Services who started with a major in Dental Hygiene but recently switched her major to Nursing due to her love of working for AES and helping people. If you see Kaitie in the hallway be sure to say hello! She's yet another one of our stellar ASPs!

Sharifah Kyazike

Sharifah Kyazike is another of our exemplary ASPs who currently serves as a LifeHealth Sciences Intern, a Grainger International Mentor, an IUPUI Peer Mentor, an Olaniyan Scholar, and many more acolades that would take an additional page to list. Sharifah is currently taking this semester to expand on her research into the effects and causes of Autism in children. We support and salute Sharifah on all her accomplishments and await tales of her continued success!

Shuennhau Chang

Shuennhau Chang, a nursing major and graduating senior; has been a loyal and trusted ASP with our office for the majority of his college career. We're proud to announce Shuennhau has passed his NCLEX Exams and is officially a Board Certified Nurse! Sadly, this means Shuennhau will not be returning to work with us as an ASP, but we're proud to know he'll be bringing the same service with distinction to his nursing career!

Evening Testing Moving to AES Office

In an effort to make our services more efficient and convenient for all parties involved, AES will be moving all evening tests (those taking place after 4pm) to our office. In the coming weeks, when scheduling a test you will receive additional information as to where you will take the exam (i.e. Lab or Office). Thank you for your cooperation in this transition. The end result will be a process in the best interest of all parties involved.

Office Make Over


It's a new semester and we've got plenty of changes happening to serve you better as a client of Adaptive Educational Services at IUPUI.

  • Front Office Face-Lift. You may notice a few changes to our office suite lobby. Most notably our fish tank and office fern "Audrey". The fish seem to have a calming affect on our staff, we hope you'll enjoy them equally as much.
  • AES Ambassadors are now Accommodation Support Professionals (ASPs). To give a much more accurate presentation of the work of our student professional staff, their position has been re-titled to give a prestige and esteem befitting the service with distinction they provide.
  • Spaces have shifted. Before you walk into an office you may need to do a double take. Our director Pam King and Faculty/Student Liasion Mercedes Cannon have moved offices as has our newly appointed Associate Director Dominic Dorsey II who replaced our former A.D. Tim Anno.
  • ASP Suite. Not only do we have our conference room back, but the ASPs have an office suite of their very own, complete with computer and phone access and a nifty window to give some much needed sunlight to our hardworking student professionals.

There will be plenty more updates and changes to the office in the coming months to make your experience utilizing AES a more enjoyable one with seamless services and countless avenues to pursue and attain success. Stay tuned to our websites and social media for continued updates!

AES Takes the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS!


Ice Bucket

In an effort to raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease" Adaptive Educational Services "took the plunge" to help strike out ALS. On August 19, 2014, AES' new Associate Director Dominic Dorsey not only took the challenge but extended it to the offices/divisions of Student Affairs, Office of Equal Opportunity, the Multicultural Center and Chancellor Bantz himself!

Associate Director of Adaptive Educational Services takes Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge was started by those impacted by the disease. A video produced by those individuals including Jeanette and Anthony Senerchia, Pat Quinn, and Pete Frates and his family initiated a viral response and comitment to spread awareness and fund research for a cure to this dehabilitating and ultimately fatal disease.

To those who responded in the spirit of activism we applaud and salute you. And to those who have not participated but have questions about the disease, how fundraising is spent or how those with ALS can join the National Registry, visit for more information.
