If you are concerned that you have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Specific Learning Disorder (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia etc) or ADHD (Attention and Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) etc. that may be interfering with your academic life here at UNC, it might be possible to have a psycho-educational evaluation.
To explore whether an evaluation makes sense for you, you can talk to ARS/CAPS/The Learning Center. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, you can complete the form below. However, please know that we might have questions for you after reading through your form. Also, be aware that if you have not utilized supports or resources already in an attempt to address your challenges, it is unlikely that your request will be progressed.
- If you are a resident of North Carolina for tuition purposes and have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for the academic year at fafsa.gov, you may qualify for a scholarship to help fund this formal assessment. To explore that possibility, please complete the following online screening tool. Your responses will be reviewed by a committee comprised of staff from CAPS, Accessibility Resources (ARS) and the Learning Center. If the committee believes you would benefit from a psycho-educational evaluation, it will send your PID to The Office of Scholarships and Student Aid to determine your eligibility for the scholarship. You will receive an email with further instructions after the review and determination is complete.
- If you are NOT a resident of North Carolina and/or are NOT in receipt of financial aid, you will not qualify for a scholarship, and you should not complete the online screening tool below. However, you can review a list of recommended psychologists in the area who conduct psycho-educational evaluations. Please email email@example.com to receive this list. If you would like to better understand the evaluation process, please talk to staff at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) , located on the 3rd floor of the James Taylor Campus Health building. Students new to CAPS or who have not been seen by CAPS within the month must go to a walk-in session. All other students can call to schedule a referral coordination appointment.
