Learning Disability Specialty Clinic

The Learning Disability Clinic is a specialty clinic operating within the Psychology Training Clinic in the Psychology Department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The clinic is devoted to providing diagnostic services for those university students seeking protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act for learning problems. The clinic offers an extensive neuropsychological evaluation at a student-discounted price designed to diagnose learning disability, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and other issues that interfere with learning and are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Individuals seeking such an evaluation contact the Accessibility Resource Center (229-5660 or 229-6239) first to determine whether an evaluation from the Learning Disability Clinic is required. If an evaluation is required then two sessions of testing are scheduled. Once testing is completed a follow-up appointment is scheduled to discuss the results and, if a diagnosis of learning-related difficulty is made, then a referral back to ARC occurs to discuss possible classroom accommodations and other arrangements to facilitate academic performance.
