How does Disabilities Services determine the "Reasonable" accommodation(s) to be provided?

The student is asked to describe the functional limitations of the particular educational environment. The student's narrative report is compared to the functional limitations associated with the standard scores and percentiles in the evaluation report. When a match occurs, the student's need for an "appropriate" accommodation is confirmed. The "reasonableness" is related to the extent of adaptation proposed in terms of environmental adaptation, technology required, educational methods and course requirements.
