Discrimination by a Professor?
An instructor asked me to drop her class when she found out I had ADHD. Is this discrimination?
If the school is subject to either the ADA or 504 laws, you have two courses of action. First, request accommodations for ADHD through your school’s disability office. The accommodations would be based on current documentation of your disability, how it impairs functioning, the need for accommodations, and how accommodations can address your disability.
Second, if you believe your professor is discriminating against you, this may represent discrimination under the ADA and Section 504. File a complaint through your school’s grievance procedures.
