Academic accommodations (i.e., extended time, note-taking assistance, distraction-reduced testing environment, alternate test format) are provided by colleges and universities and in “high stakes” testing situations (GREs, MCATs, Licensing Exams, etc) in order to level the playing field for individuals with some form of disability. Compared to many public school systems, it is often easier to obtain such accommodations at the college level but an evaluation which addresses specific criteria is needed. Also, at the college level, the student must be his/her own advocate in requesting any academic accommodation. Dr. Noles has extensive experience helping college students navigate the often confusing world of disability services.
