Accommodation in Higher Education

A No-Nonsense Guide for Clinicians, Educators, Lawyers, and Administrators  Edited by Michael Gordon, PhD and Shelby Keiser, MS Foreword by Alta Lapoint, University of Massachusetts Medical Center

Which psychiatric, learning, and physical disorders warrant academic and test-taking accommodations under the ADA? What are the best approaches for conducting evaluations, writing reports, and reviewing documentation?

Cutting through the morass of ambiguity surrounding current disability law, the book outlines a series of fundamental principals and actual clinical/administrative procedures. Contributors draw upon extensive hands-on experience with managing ADA issues to provide helpful diagnostic roadmaps, sample evaluations, reproducible forms, and resource listings.

An appendix presents the most current consensus guidelines (developed by two prominent national organizations) for the documentation of both learning disabilities and ADHD in adolescents and adults.

What professionals say:

"This book is the perfect primer for lawyers who want to understand how the ADA applies to higher education and professional testing. It provides a crystal clear window into the identification of psychiatric, learning, and physical disorders, and should be in the library of every attorney involved with disability law."

"This book does not shy away from the important questions, challenges, and controversies facing the accommodation process. It expands the grasp of tools available to educators and administrators committed to doing the right thing by the students and institutions they serve."
