What kind of services do colleges provide for people with learning disabilities?
I am a student who has ADD, Dyslexia and Social Anxiety. I also have 504 accommodations. #learning-disabilities #college #dyslexia #anxiety #add #disability #services
Like Karen stated, your college should have an office for helping students with disabilities. At my university, they call it the Adaptive Services Office, so just make sure you ask around to find the right place. You are going to need documents from doctors about your learning disabilities, as some colleges will not accept your word on it that you had accommodations in high school. Make sure you document everything too: what days you were there, the information they gave you, who you spoke to, etc. My university tried to tell me that there was nothing they could do for my disability, but I fought them on it and finally received accommodations. I am not trying to scare you about this, I just want you to be preparred! Hope this helps!
Your college should have a Disabilities Office who can help you navigate accommodations at the college level. You can search your college's website for the contact information of this office or speak with a contact at the college such as your academic advisor to get the contact information of someone in the Disabilities Office.
