Accommodations in higher education can be very different from K-12 and workplace accommodations.  We will present an overview of what reasonable accommodations look like in higher education and scenarios of a variety of accommodation requests.  In addition, we will go over the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) documentation guidelines and talk about reasonable documentation in higher education. Presenters are Tessa DiPerri, University of Maryland, College Park and Crystal Tenan, Towson State University.
