College Learning Disability ADHD Testing in Florida
Your child may have had accommodations in high school and many of those same accommodations are available in college. Most universities require updated testing for college learning disability ADHD accommodations which means testing within the last three years. The most common college accommodations are extended time on tests, distraction reduced testing, small group or individual testing, copies of notes, and preferential seating. Other college accommodations include using technology such as a tablet or computer to take notes during class.
Less frequent accommodations include having a course substituted or waived, a single dorm room without a roommate, and extended time to complete your degree. Each school’s office for students with disabilities can give you the specific accommodations they provide. If you had a 504 Plan or IEP in high school it can be helpful to bring that with you to show the types of accommodations you previously received. Colleges do not honor your previous IEP or 504 Plan nor do they write an IEP or 504 Plan but they provide accommodations as part of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
We do college learning disability ADHD testing for high school and college students so that your paperwork is updated and ready to submit for accommodations. Testing can be done in one day and your written report with results and specific college recommendations is ready in less than a week.
