I have been in Higher Education for about 15 years and have had students with accommodations.  I think what stood out to me in this first module is that it is not necessarly a right of the disabled person to have an accommodation.  I think we get hung up on request of students sometimes and that we have to grant it even if they have equal access to something.  There seems to be an uptick on the amount of students requesting "quiet" space for testing and getting their PCP to write a note.  To the point that having enough space for "individual room" testing has become a burden on the institution.  I would like to see more training on the medical practitioner side regarding who and what criteria must be met to write such a note for a student.  At times, it seems like they are provided just because they are asked for and not because of a true disability.
