Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is the perfect primer for lawyers who want to understand how the ADA applies to higher education and professional testing. It provides a crystal clear window into the identification of psychiatric, learning, and physical disorders, and should be in the library of every attorney involved with disability law." --Nancy C. Hill, Esq., Partner in the law firm of Carey, Hill & Scott, Charleston, West Virginia

"This book provides well-written, practical, and user-friendly guidance for professionals who deal with students claiming a need for accommodations in instruction or testing....A 'must-read' for any clinician or administrator who handles these types of student-oriented disability issues." --David K. Fram, Esq., Director, ADA & EEO Services, National Employment Law Institute

"This book does not shy away from the important questions, challenges, and controversies facing the accommodation process. It expands the grasp of tools available to educators and administrators committed to doing the right thing by the students and institutions they serve." --Louise Harding Russell, Director, Student Disability Resource Center, Harvard University

"[This book] should be essential reading for any clinician evaluating students who are requesting educational accommodations under the ADA. It provides detailed information concerning how to conduct appropriate evaluations of mental disabilities, particularly ADHD and learning disabilities, to specifically examine educational accommodation need and rationale." --John D. Ranseen, PhD


"Important and timely....Gordon, Keiser, and other contributors raise the big questions that need to be asked."--Contemporary Psychology
(Contemporary Psychology 2000-02-17)

"An exceptionally valuable resource."--Readings
(Readings 2000-02-17)

"Will be of interest to anyone who is in the position of making judgments about whether a person is entitled to an accommodation under the ADA. The book is particularly useful in describing what type of background reports should be prepared to document clinical conditions and to inform applicants of an employer's disability-related decision."--ADA Update
(ADA Update 2000-02-17)

Format: Paperback
This book claims to be a guide for lawyers among others but fails to give case citations or even case names in the one section that is written by a lawyer. This leaves the inquisitive reader to try and decipher which federal case is being referred to based on the fact description or holding. There must be better choices on this topic.

Format: Paperback
I understand the ire of a person who resents having to be compared with the general population, rather than to a specialized group the person wishes to become a member of, to have accommodations, but I feel that in her chapter on testing accommodations she does explain her viewpoint and the legal underpinnings of her opinion. In general, this book is a very good guide to documentation standards, provides forms that are useful, and is well worth the money as a reference book. Melissa Manning, Ph.D. Associate Director, Services for Students with Disabilities University of Kansas
