A 37 yr old who takes Ritalin, go to Tufts University/ School of Museum of Fine Arts grad student; I have Two schools. In 1st gr I was diagnosed me with auditory processing disorder, reading disorder, ADD. In grammar school I received special educational services. I had psychoeducational testing performed for undergrad school 17yrs in 1995. Then I had neuropsychological testing perform 2004 aged 25 yrs an adult before attend grad school in NY. NO MONEY to retest. The Dean of SMFA says she will accommodate me. The Director student Accessibility at Tufts led me to believe she would if got letter from my former tutor about my current learning style. Told me to tell my professors to accommodate me until processed by her. Now, she recants says can't accommodate me without new testing.Sorry, I miscategorized. Should be under Education. At the time of my Neuropsycholoical testing, I also was diagnosed with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and had periodic depression and anxiety. The test examined my mental state. Could I also use psychological disorder to acquire services?
My experience with my own child is that up to date testing and diagnosis is needed.
