Title: "Why Is It So hard?" Advising and Supporting Students With Learning Differences
Lead Presenter: Elizabeth Smith
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Room: 233, DECC
Abstract: Diversity is a powerful construct in today's world. Students with learning differences are often overlooked in diversity discussions. They face challenges not readily apparent to university personnel. Academic advisors are the first line of support but are there ways to proactively identify challenges before problems develop? Institutions have an obligation beyond access to education. Deliberate planning should promote success and retention. Inclusive environments lead to success and are the goal of higher education institutions everywhere. Intentional academic advisors mitigate challenges experienced by this population and move them toward success. But what happens once these students connect with the Accessibility Resources office? This 2-part presentation gives practical resources for advising students with disabilities and partnering with your Accessibility office to lead students to success.
