All colleges and universities offer services to students with learning disabilities, including dyslexia and ADHD. Some of the services typically offered include:
– Note taking assistance
– Extra time for completion of assignments
– Extended time on tests/quizzes
– Test reading
– Test scribe
– Breaks during class
– Priority registration of classes
In order to gain access to these services, it is important to have updated documentation of the student’s disability. Most colleges and universities require evaluation data to be completed within
the last 3-5 years. It is important to check with your school to find out their specific guidelines for receiving services. Application to disability services can be made after the student has been accepted to the school.
