A college support program dedicated to helping students with language-based learning disabilities and/or ADHD achieve their academic and personal goals.

Students enrolled at Adelphi and the Learning Resource Program can kick-start their fall college experience by participating in our summer program.
Students choose this structured support program for the unique implementation of educational and counseling services that embraces and values the diversity of their strengths and learning styles. We work with students to enhance self-advocacy skills, providing an important link with supportive faculty and staff across campus.

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.
