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 a current evaluation within the last 3-5 years that documents a diagnosed disability and justifies the need for support.
It is important to check with your school to find out their specific guidelines for receiving services.
A disability does not have to be revealed as part of the admissions process and will not hinder the student’s chances of acceptance. Application to disability services is made after the student has been accepted to the school and not prior.
Diagnostic Learning Services offers specific evaluations that meet college and university documentation requirements. In addition, we will use the assessment information to makes relevant recommendations for both school and home.
