Updating documentation for learning disabilities
Learning Disabilities are a group of neurologically based difficulties that negatively impact a student’s ability to demonstrate specific academic skills.
In the educational setting, these disabilities may interfere with speaking, listening, reading, writing, spelling, or computation.
Disadvantages: Any accommodations and support that you receive while the assessment process is underway would be general, and not necessarily tailored to your specific learning needs.
Advantages: You would have all of the documentation in place for registering in the summertime.
This could support applying to the Pre-Flight program, and the LD Credit Course.
IEPs or 504 plans from a student's high school may be included, as they provide information about how the student was viewed in his or her high school context.
To determine accommodation needs that are appropriate to the university, though, we need a report of a comprehensive evaluation that includes testing instruments, scores, a specific diagnosis and specific recommendations.
