This paper aims to help service providers more accurately identify specific areas of need and effective accommodations for postsecondary students with learning disabilities, through interpretation of previously prepared diagnostic reports combined with informal interview and assessment techniques. The paper discusses the factors to consider in determining the appropriateness of diagnostic reports, what to look for in diagnostic reports, reasons for providing accommodations for student with learning disabilities, evaluation data necessary to determine appropriate support services, and techniques for sorting data into a useful format. A Student Profile Summary Chart is used to identify pertinent data from psychoeducational and neurological reports and to match individual student needs with appropriate support services. A list of instructional accommodations and program modifications is provided. Includes 14 references. (JDD)
