Donna:  I am a freshman student at a community college with asperger syndrome. I was confronted and questioned by my accounting professor that my project was good, “in fact too good”. He insinuated I must have had help from someone. Help is encouraged by way of a writing and math center. However he believed I received 80 percent help from someone else therefore he is telling me I must redo the project. I’m insulted by the assumption I could not be doing my own work. What should I do?

Donna –

I can see why the professor’s assumptions would be insulting. I suggest that you contact someone from your college’s office of student services or the 504/ADA coordinator, to enlist their assistance.

I think that this professor (and others) would benefit from knowing more about your disability, and how it specifically impacts your school work. The coordinator can likely help you navigate this specific situation, as well as help you craft something to present to this teacher.
