Learning Disability Testing
The Office of Students With Disabilities Services now provides learning disability testing for students.
This service can be a significant savings to students, as private providers often charge up to $1,500 per report and the wait can be from four to six weeks for an appointment. Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover diagnostic testing for learning disabilities, making USF's service all the more of valuable.
In order to qualify, the student must be degree-seeking, eligible for financial aid, and in need of disability documentation because available documentation does not meet standards, or because there is no available documentation.
Since January, the office has partnered with Psychological Services to distribute 50 applications, with 18 returned. Several of those were referred for testing.
If you know a student who might benefit from the disability testing service, please share this information.
