Summary or Abstract : This study examined the kinds of accommodations available to LD graduate students, as well as the social construct of disability at 77 member institutions of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP). All ADA officers were surveyed using an instrument created by the researcher, and descriptive statistics for all response options on all items of the survey are reported. On average, the NCSPP schools provide about half of the 28 listed accommodations, but findings suggest that disabled students may be underutilizing services. The most commonly available accommodations include library assistance and academic counselors/advisors, tutors and writers/editors/proofreaders, and recorders/voice-activated software. However, the only two heavily utilized accommodations are extra time for coursework and testing accommodations. Other findings of note include: (1) ADA officers report many LD students are un-willing to self-disclose their diagnosis; (2) schools provide outreach more to the general public than to enrolled students; (3) training on "issues that LD students face" is not commonly provided; and (4) APA site visitors do not generally ask about disability services, but such attention seems to increase service availability. Overall, more NCSPP schools held a medical model view of disability, while a minority primarily endorsed a minority model. Accordingly, the accommodations least available are political or support groups and student council representatives. Recommendations for improving services, outreach and educational policy regarding LD issues at the post-secondary level are provided..
