Getting Started with Learning Accommodations

1 – 2 – 3 – Process

  1. Contact the Learning Accommodations Center 6 – 8 weeks before your semester starts and ask for a Request Services Meeting (RSM/Intake) – this meeting will last about one hour. The counselor will ask you about the nature of your disability and your abilities in reading, writing, math, test-taking, concentration, and memory.
    Email: lacenter@necc.mass.edu
    Voice: 978-556-3654
  2. Fill out an Application For Services (PDF)
  3. Bring copies, not originals, of disability documentation. These should include a stated diagnosis of your disability such as:
    • Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder
    • Brain Injury
    • Learning Disability
    • Low vision/Blind/Legally Blind
    • Autism Spectrum or Asperger’s Syndrome
    • Physical Disability
    • Chronic Illness
    • Seizure Disorder
    • Psychiatric or Neurobiological Disorder

After the Request for Services Meeting has been completed and documentation has been submitted, it is reviewed by a professional team at the Learning Accommodation Center and a specific accommodation plan will be recommended.
