									    LOCAL RESOURCES FOR PERSONS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES and/or ADD/ADHD
             * Indicates Testing/Diagnosis Available (Revised October 2006)


Please note: Montgomery College does not test for or diagnose disabilities. Students who
suspect they have a learning disability may:

    Contact their insurance company to see if it will pay for a psychological or neuropsychological
     evaluation.
    Seek a formal diagnosis from a certified professional, such as a neurologist, psychiatrist,
     psychologist, or a learning disabilities specialist.


Montgomery College does not endorse or assume responsibility for any product, method,
service or treatment listed on this resource list. The listing is provided on request to
students with disabilities who are seeking local resources. If other local resources should
be added, please contact Disability Support Services at 240-567-5058 or TTY (301) 294-
9672 (for the deaf and hard of hearing).
