Contact the ODE to discuss your options. A list of resources of professionals who assess for a learning disability has been compiled by the Office of Disability and Equity (ODE) at the Community College of Aurora for interested students. The ODE does not endorse anyone on this list over anyone not on this list. All evaluators should be personally interviewed. This information is provided as a public service and the ODE accepts no liability for contracts made, as ODE has not necessarily screened the qualifications of these evaluators. This list is not exhaustive. Check with your medical doctor, local mental health center, or the Colorado Psychological Association Referral for other resources. The fees vary and some of the resources charge on a sliding scale, based on income. The assessment fee is the responsibility of the student. Those outlined in a box charge on a sliding scale based on income.

Once the ODE has received your completed Needs Assessment and documentation of disability, the ODE will contact you for an appointment. This process takes approximately 3-5 working days.
