Accommodations for College Students with Learning Differences: Understanding Your Role

One of the biggest differences between high school and college academic accommodations is who is responsible for advocating on the student’s behalf. In college, LD students will need to know their rights and self-advocate where in high school, many of the initial requests were done by parents, teachers, or administrators. DVFS students posses strong self-advocacy skills and the U.S. Department of Education article linked here is a helpful reminder about how to proceed in the request process for auxiliary aides in college.
