I encourage those of you with disabilities, particularly ``hidden disabilities'' such as learning disabilities, to come see me about the accommodations that I can make to make your learning easier. If you have not already done so, you should also discuss your disability with academic advising. If you think you may have an undocumented learning disability, please speak to me and to academic advising.
In my experience, some learning difficulties can make computer science more difficult because of computers' emphasis on small details. I also know that many of my favorite and best students have some learning disability, and have certainly succeeded. We'll all do better if you talk to me about disabliities early.
Note that I generally feel that the ``accommodations'' that we are asked to make for those with learning disabilities are often appropriate for all students. Hence, I rarely give timed exams and I typically allow students to use computers during exams.
