Accommodations were not specified; instead, the controversy over accommodations for students with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and other learning disabilities was discussed, and recommendations about how schools might address them were provided. Extra time, separate testing rooms, noise-free rooms, and written lecture notes were mentioned as examples of accommodations students received.
Campus experts about learning disabilities, professors, and students at UNC–Chapel Hill (U.S.) participated.
Participants were interviewed about several topics related to accommodations for students with ADD, ADHD, and other learning disabilities, including faculty views of accommodations, whether students with disabilities are being improperly prepared for the future, whether accommodations unfairly benefit some students and not others, and if privacy rules around accommodations are harmful to students.
The researcher concluded that the controversy about accommodations would likely continue for some time. It was suggested that postsecondary administrators should open their accommodations processes to scrutiny and include a panel of members to make decisions rather than a sole staff member. It was also recommended that postsecondary administrators be more transparent and rigorous in their accommodations processes in order to eliminate any potential unfairness with the provision of accommodations.
