Mary is a first-year student who is diagnosed with ADHD. She has always done well in school and has never had any difficulty completing class assignments because she is a hard worker.  One of the courses she is taking this semester is very complicated and has a lot of reading.  The professor also talks in his lectures about things that are not in the reading, and she is having trouble following everything he says. Her notes do not have enough detail to help her remember what he said.

  • What are the problems this student is facing?
  • What would be an appropriate accommodation?
  • What would be an appropriate second choice for the accommodation?
