What if I think I have a disability and wish to be assessed?
Please contact or stop by the Learning Center and tell us your story. We will be glad to listen and direct you to potential next steps in the process. The Learning Center does not provide testing or assessment for disabilities; we recommend visiting the Biola Counseling Center for testing at a reduced cost, or going through your own insurance company for referrals within their network.
