General Memory Information
Memory, including the acquisition, storage, and retrieval of information, involves a complex set of cognitive processes and neurological structures. Some students registered with the PMC have disability-related functional impairments that directly affect memory. At university, students must learn and retrieve significantly more information at a higher level of complexity and detail than they have in the past.
The general purpose of all academic accommodations is to increase the likelihood that the performance of students reflects their knowledge and ability, rather than the functional impact of their disability, without jeopardizing essential course requirements or providing an unfair advantage. Memory Aids are a rare accommodation for students whose disabilities clearly impact on the ability to retrieve information that they have learned during tests and exams.
