Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended in 2008.
Do you think you have a disability? It’s never too late to receive accommodations! Think back to elementary school, middle, and high school. Did you struggle with math, reading, or focusing? Fifty percent of students registered with SSD began receiving services as upper-class or graduate students after they recognized that their academic performance did not reflect their aptitude and effort.
