Student Disability Advisor — Oregon

Degree-seeking Oregon students with disabilities aren't alone in their endeavors. One study shows that nationwide, nearly 20 percent of students enrolled in colleges and universities have a disability.

If your college, university, or training program will not recognize your disability or refuses to grant you accommodations, contact national education attorney-advisor Joseph D. Lento.

Contact attorney advisor Lento and his team for help with your Oregon school disability issue.
