All students in higher education are expected to manage coursework and personal responsibilities. Students with disabilities can be at a disadvantage without eligible accommodations in place. This session presents information about students with disability-related barriers in a post-secondary environment focusing on students with learning disabilities, ADHD, mental health disorders, and autism; discusses The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) requirements for eligible accommodations; discusses some of the most common eligible accommodations and their application in the classroom and other university settings; and explores the strengths and weaknesses of the fastest-growing population on college campuses: students on the autism spectrum.
