Do you know how to describe your disability and how it impacts you? Most students don’t. One skill that all students with disabilities should develop is the ability to talk about his or her disability and need for accommodations. Most students aren't sure where to start or what information is relevant.
The first questions you should ask yourself are “How does my disability affect me?” and "How am I struggling in my studies?" The answers to these questions will usually lead you to the modifications that you need to accommodate your disability.
If you are still having difficulty, contact your center's disability representative or the Office of Collegewide Disability Services.
