In order to be eligible, students must have a documented disability which represents a significant barrier to one of life’s major activities. Current and comprehensive documentation of disability is required in order to be eligible for the program. For students with learning disabilities, this documentation would include the most recent M-Team report, and a report from the school psychologist with test scores. Preferred test batteries include the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS IV), and Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-educational Battery-Revised. Ideally, students with ADHD and traumatic brain injuries will submit a recent neuropsychological evaluation.
Students are encouraged to provide the LD Program with the required documentation and application as early as possible, ideally, before the start of the semester. Students must complete an application for general University admission, in addition to applying separately to the LD Program.
