The Learning Support Services Program at Schreiner University serves a limited number of students, usually 60-70 each year, who have been diagnosed with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, or a specific learning disability in reading, mathematics or written expression. Students in the program attend regular college-level courses, are held to the same high standards, and complete the same curriculum requirements as all other degree candidates. In addition to the LSS staff, the Schreiner University faculty is dedicated to helping students realize their full potential. Students admitted to the Learning Support Services program must be highly motivated, have the intellectual potential for success in a rigorous academic program, and have the ability to meet the demands of college life.
While the LSS program is specifically designed to provide academic support to students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder and/or specific learning disabilities, we can accept a limited number of students on the Autism spectrum who can participate in the program effectively and appropriately.
Students with traumatic brain injuries, intellectual disabilities, perceptual disorders, mobility impairments or psychological disorders seeking academic accommodations may, with appropriate documentation, qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Accommodations under Section 504 are provided at no charge.
