Student Disability Advisor — West Virginia

Students with disabilities pursuing diplomas and degrees will face pressures during their journeys related to accommodations for their qualifying disabilities. However, they are not alone in their efforts. One study shows that one in five college and university students nationwide live with an emotional, mental, or physical disability. Although state and federal laws and regulations compel schools at multiple levels to provide reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities, West Virginia schools sometimes fail in their obligations.

Lento. He and the Lento Law Firm's Student Defense Team stand ready to defend your disability rights for equal education access.
