The Program emphasizes the development of compensatory strategies. Each student is assigned to work one-on-one with a Learning Specialist*. Typically, freshmen meet with their Specialist two sessions per week. While the goals of each session must be individualized, typical sessions concentrate on:
- Improving writing skills
- Note taking skills
- Organization skills
- Test-taking strategies
- Time management skills
The Specialist will also establish a plan for necessary and appropriate academic accommodations. There is no charge for these accommodations which may include any of the following:
- Adaptive testing procedures
- Alternative text
- Use of adaptive equipment
- Personal readers
*A program fee is charged only for the services of the Learning Specialist.
