Shannon Prendgergast's curator insight, November 12, 2014 1:25 PM

Even though I do not want to attended these colleges it is a helpful to consider this while looking at colleges. I will need to call the representatives of the school I wish to apply to and talk with them about what kind of accommodations they have for students like me.  I know I will need to have  accommodations for extended time on tests and assignments as well as needing provided notes because of the challenges I face while trying to copy material from the board. information just gets lost between the link of my brain to my hand. This article is just a reminder of the steps I will need to take.
