Learning Disability Services

Learning Disability Services

The Accessible Education Center (AEC) strives to provide an array of academically related services for students with learning disabilities. Accommodations for curriculum requirements are determined on a case-by-case basis and provided specifically for coursework in which the learning disability impacts curriculum requirements. Students can be self identified or referred to the AEC. All students are encouraged to meet with professional staff well in advance of the start of classes to discuss their academic needs and to set up appropriate services.

Learning Disability Documentation Criteria

Students are responsible for providing documentation that supports the learning disability diagnosis and provides justification for the requested  accommodation(s). Documentation should reflect the current impact of the learning disability in the student’s academic life and the functional limitations resulting from the learning disability (i.e.: an inability to take comprehensive course notes due to memory deficits).

For more information on learning disability documentation criteria, please visit:  Learning Disability Documentation Guidelines.
