UUsing EEG to Determine Appropriate ADHD Accommodations: What are EEGs, and how do I make sense of them?

Author: April

April Beckwith has been working at the post-secondary level of disability services for the past two years. In her current role, she spends much of her on documentation review and student meetings in which accommodation plans are reviewed and implemented. Of the approximately 1,200 students registered with the Office of Student Accessibility Services at Clemson, about 45% of these students have ADHD. Therefore, many of the students April meets with weekly are students reporting a variety of ADHD symptoms, who come to the office with a wide range of documentation formats and sources. Prior to coming Clemson’s Office of Student Accessibility Services, she taught elementary special education for three years in South Carolina public schools. April presented last year at the 2016 AHEAD Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana on the topic of campus accessibility and the development of a customized way finding app for students with visual impairments.
