Learning & Disability Resources

Learning & Disability Resources (LADR) provides advising and services to ATSU students who want to enhance their learning and academic performance. In addition, LADR coordinates academic adjustments (accommodations) for ATSU students with disabilities.

LADR provides one-on-one, confidential learning advisement sessions tailored to individual learning preferences and challenges. Periodically throughout the academic year, seminars and/or workshops are offered on specific learning techniques. Guidance is also available for board exam preparation. Peer tutors are recruited and coordinated through our department as well.

We encourage every student to visit our office at least once to receive a personalized learning advisement session, and students are welcome to return as often as desired for additional support and guidance.

  • Students with Disabilities +

    • In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Amendments Act of 2008, Learning & Disability Resources supports ATSU students with disabilities by determining eligibility and providing necessary academic adjustments, while maintaining the standards of the University. Academic adjustments are provided for qualified students with disabilities, to ensure that academic requirements do not have discriminating effects. Any student seeking academic adjustments to accommodate limitations due to a documented disability is required to register with Learning & Disability Resources. Requests for academic adjustments must be made in writing. A confidential, interactive process is used to determine eligibility on a case-by-case basis. While requests can be made at any time, the review process can take up to three (3) weeks, so requesting well in advance of anticipated need is recommended. ATSU’s Academic Adjustments Process (pdf) provides additional information.

  • Tutoring +

    • ATSU provides peer tutoring services for on-campus program students who wish to improve their academic achievement.
