DePaul’s program is PLuS (Productive Learning Strategies):
Once enrolled in PLuS, students take courses in the regular DePaul University curriculum; no special courses for students with LD and/or AD/HD are offered. Students may choose to work with a PLuS clinician (LD specialist) for one or two hours per week. The focus of those sessions is on remediation of basic skills, instruction in compensatory strategies, and study skills. The PLuS clinicians are not tutors. Please note that availability of clinicians is limited.
Accommodations and services offered by PLuS include:
- Extended time on math placement exam;
- Exam proctoring (for extended time on exams);
- Priority registration;
- Course selection advising;
- Reader and/or transcriber for exams;
- Note-taking assistance;
- Assistive technology;
- Advocacy; and
- Weekly sessions with a PLuS clinician (professional Learning Specialists; please note that because availability of clinicians is limited, students may be placed on a waiting list for this specific service).
Students should note that by “note taking assistance” DePaul means they will pay for you to copy a classmate’s notes, not that they will arrange a notetaker for you.
