Welcome to the Learning Skills Department.
The Learning Skills Program is designed to serve students with learning disabilities (LD) and attention deficit disorder (ADHD). These challenges can affect classroom performance, making it difficult for students to succeed without classroom accommodations, specific compensatory techniques, specialized instruction, and/or support services. Many of the students in our program utilize accommodations and services which include: extended time on tests in a less distracting environment, note takers, priority registration, assistance with class scheduling, specialized computer applications, tutoring, and counseling from DSPS counselors.With the assistance offered by our program, students successfully fulfill their personal academic goals, complete their degree or certificates, or transfer to universities.We offer learning disability assessments to determine eligibility for our services. Students who have ADHD, or have previously received services because of a learning disability, should bring their supporting documentation to the Learning Skills Program Office.
