Testing for Learning Disabilities

If you think you may have a disability, you can make an appointment with our Learning Disability Specialist to see if an assessment is recommended.

The Learning Disability Specialist can recommend special courses that will help you with learning strategies, reading, math and writing. The specialist can also recommend accommodations that will support your academic success.

  • Learning disability assessment
  • Learning skills classes
  • DSS tutoring and learning strategies
  • Educational planning and advising
