Assistive Technology: What to Ask Colleges

Assistive Technology: What to Ask Colleges


When your college-bound teen relies heavily on assistive technology (AT) to compensate for his or her learning disability, it's imperative to know what to ask colleges, beginning with the laws as it relates to assistive technology.


Are you a college-bound teen who relies on assistive technology (AT) to compensate for your learning disability or AD/HD? As you prepare for college, it's important to know your rights and responsibilities regarding AT accommodations as a college student. Once on campus, it'll be up to you to advocate for your needs and take the initiative to get the AT accommodations you need to succeed.



Sound overwhelming? Don't worry! We've created a checklist of questions to ask campus disability services counselors about their school's AT policies in general, as well as specific questions about your individual needs. This "AT interview process" may help you choose the right college and prepare you to hit the ground running once you're there.
