Is This Program Right For You?

Learning disabilities are generally invisible disabilities. While students may have a diagnosis of an auditory processing disorder, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, a language processing disorder, a non-verbal learning disability, or ADHD, no two students are alike. For some students, the difference in the way they perceive and process information can create gaps in communication, attention, organization and/or planning. Often students have had special education services before college and/or specialized tutors to assist them. They may have an IEP or 504 accommodations. Most students report looking for a college that provides a structured and supportive program, where they can focus on their strengths and be valued for their gifts and contribution to the diverse campus community.

The Learning Resource Program is an incredibly warm and welcoming space for students with learning disabilities who are facing unique challenges. It helped launch my successful career, and I am forever grateful for the faculty that supported me along the way.
