Do I Qualify for Accommodations?
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, a person with a disability is anyone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, and learning.
Possible Types of Disabilities:
- Visual impairment
- Deaf/hearing impairment
- Mobility impairment
- Learning disability
- Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
- Certain medical conditions
- Mental health disabilities
Students that were served by an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) or a 504 plan in high school do not automatically qualify for accommodations or services at the postsecondary level.
