Job Accommodations Network

Many students with learning disabilities entering college have not experimented with various types of academic accommodations beyond testing modifications. The Job Accommodations Network is a wonderful resource to tap into for ideas on how various types of limitations (e.g., writing, reading, math, concentration, memory, time management) can be accommodated.
