WHAT MAKES CLE SERVICES DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I CAN RECEIVE ON CAMPUS?
Negotiating a college campus and learning new systems is a challenge for many students; additional stress may be added for someone with learning challenges. We have the capability to provide personalized supports that extend beyond what traditional college programs provide. It is our role to remove the guessing game and frustrations by acting as a liaison and coach for students. While we are there to help, the ultimate goal is to continuously instruct students to learn and take accountability.
From the time of enrollment, staff supports students with:
- Applying for and signing up for courses
- Learning to navigate the campus
- Accessing and utilizing accommodations and working with the disability support office
- Actively communicating with professors
Motivation and self-esteem play a large factor in long-term drive to attain one’s goals. Starting immediately with supports can help bridge the gap and avoid a challenging first semester.
Did you know?
Postsecondary institutions have no obligation to identify and support students with disabilities, and individual disclosure of a disability is always voluntary. A student-initiated request is the only way to trigger access to accommodations and for requests like an alternate test location, the students must advocate each time they require this.
