Higher Learning, Stronger Support
Students with learning differences and other special needs have every reason to expect to go to college and succeed when they get there. Even just saying that a student has a learning difference is very broad – this category could include students struggling with:
- Being twice exceptional (meeting criteria for both gifted and learning disabilities)
- An Autism Spectrum Disorder
- A mental health issue (e.g. anxiety, depression)
- An intellectual disability
Read about how we work with both domestic and international students for an overview of our general approach.
When working with students who will benefit from support services, we go the extra mile to help set them up for success. This may include helping students:
- Qualify to receive accommodations for standardized testing
- Identify where they will receive support services and the level of support they can expect in college
- Qualify for learning support services
- Obtain updated or new psycho-educational testing, and find referrals to help support the student if additional help is needed
Whatever the situation, we have worked with a wide range of students with learning differences and have the expertise to assist with a variety of needs.
We have also work with students who are applying to college from therapeutic boarding schools and may need help finding resources to support their transition.
