Program Details

    • Personal consultations with your professor
      • Preprogram
      • Postprogram
    • Daily face-to-face group sessions
    • Daily academic support check-ins with your professor

    • Four Learning Modules:
    • Chat sessions with LC students and alumni available throughout the program
    • A Personal Learning Plan—developed by you and supplemented by your professor

    Each learning module will help you to understand and get answers to questions like:

    Self-Identification: How would I describe my learning differences? What labels have been used to describe me and what do they mean? What are the benefits/limitations of learning labels? How “flexible” is my sense of myself as a learner?

    Self-Understanding: What are my strengths and challenges? What are my predictable patterns as a learner? What gets in the way of my academic and personal success? How does addressing out-of-classroom needs impact my academic success?

    Self-Strategies: What is the difference between study skills and learning strategies? What are some strategies I can use to be more successful? How can I improve my executive functioning and better retain academic information?

    Self-Advocacy: What does it mean to be a successful self-advocate? What is my learning profile and how can I communicate that to others? How can I be effective at getting the support I need? What are my rights under the law? What are some specific ways that I know I will need to advocate for myself?

  • NOTE: All times are Eastern Time Zone. Each module is approximately 3 – 4 hours and all are asynchronous.
