Learning Disabilities SUPPORT SERVICES

After the assessment process, an Individual Plan is developed with recommendations for needed skills
training and appropriate accommodations. Following is a list of accommodations and services that the
student may be eligible for as indicated in his/her personal educational plan. 

  • Test Proctoring
    If recommended as an appropriate accommodation on your Student Educational Contract,
    this option offers a quiet, non-distracted environment, with extra  time if indicated.
  • Priority Registration
    For Fall and Spring only

  • Volunteer Note takers
    This is an option for students who have difficulty listening and taking notes at  the same time.
    Tape recording lectures is also an option, but it is also possible to request the assistance of a
    student in the class who is a good note taker and is willing to volunteer. See your contact instructor.

  • Books on tape and E-text
     
    This is an excellent resource for students who have reading 
     difficulties.  Discuss with your contact instructor. Click here for more
     information about Learning Ally

  • Study Strategies Classes

  • Drop-in Tutoring  Appointments 
    These are available for "short term" help. Ask at the LD desk.

  • Tutoring
    See your contact instructor to discuss needs. The LD program has help available primarily
    in Math and English. Please note that there are many options available on campus for Tutoring.

  • High Tech Training Center
    Assistive technology training, word-processing classes, computer-assisted  instruction,
    introduction to the internet, tools for success in SMC coursework! There are also "open lab times"
    to get help or work on an assignment.
