My ex-wife is dyslexic, and based on psychiatric

Customer Question

My ex-wife is dyslexic, and based on psychiatric evaluations, is confirmed to have a disability. She was enrolled in a nursing program at Edgewood College in Madison, WI. She has had difficulties in getting accommodations. For example, an instructor asked her not to record her lectures for later review, being forced to give up class or lab time to take tests because the instructor didn't want to allot her extra time, and being denied class material in certain formats because she doesn't "look" disabled. Although she has two B's and an A in her classes to date, she was kicked out of nursing program last week for failing a skills test (the instructor stood over her and glared at her the entire time which made her feel intimidated) Is there any recourse for my ex-wife?
