Accommodating Students

What is involved in applying for academic accommodations at Trinity?

  • Students must submit an application to the Disability Coordinator, Lori Clapis, along with a copy of the complete report of psycho-educational or neuropsychological testing.
  • The testing required in order to receive academic accommodations usually involves fairly exhaustive testing over the course of 1-2 days, and typically includes parent interviews. The most common of which – the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale – assesses IQ, verbal comprehension, perceptual reasoning, working memory and processing speed
  • One of Trinity’s psychologists will carefully review testing and if appropriate, approve the requested accommodations.
  • For those students who have never explored applying for academic accommodations in college, refer them to the Disability Coordinator.
