Once you have printed the Disability Documentation Form (PDF) please only complete the area marked Student Section and make sure that you have included your signature. Your signature acts as a medical release and without it your licensed professional will be unable to complete their section. Please take this form to your licensed professional and request that they complete the remainder of the form. When this is completed please return this page with your application to the Partners in Access to College Education office and schedule your first appointment.
To qualify for accommodations and services as a student with a learning disability a student needs to submit any one of the following:

If you do not have a copy of your LD documentation submit a Record Request (PDF) to the college, community agency, or high school, if you were previously assessed for learning disabilities.

Learning Disability Assessment
We are sorry, but at this time we are not able to conduct Learning Disability Assessments. Please contact PACE staff to see if you are still eligible for PACE services under another category.
To qualify for accommodations and services as a student with a learning disability a student needs to do the following:
In addition to an application, submit a completed Learning Disability Intake Screening packet from the Partners in Access to College Education (PACE) office in room 2006. This screening packet asks you to describe your educational history, academic strengths and weaknesses, and whether other conditions, such as vision or hearing impairments, might also be affecting your academic progress.
Submit a Record Request (PDF) to the college, community agency, or high school, if you were previously assessed by for learning disabilities. After they have returned the required documentation to our office we will then phone you at the number you have listed on your documentation to schedule your first appointment.
The Learning Disability Specialist will evaluate your educational background, possible symptoms of a learning disability, and previous assessments that may have been done, and determine whether further assessment is necessary.
