Limestone is home to an assistance program called “Program for Alternative Learning Styles” (PALS). From the website:

The Limestone College Program for Alternative Learning Styles (PALS) was developed to serve college age students with specific learning disabilities. During Fall 2004, PALS added life coaches to work with all new PALS students (please refer to the “Benefits” section for details). Only students with documented learning disabilities and/or ADD/ADHD are eligible to receive program services. For program purposes, learning disabled refers to students with average to above average intelligence (above 90 IQ), who have a discrepancy between measured intelligence and achievement. This term does not refer to students with mental retardation, brain injury, or other conditions. While any student interested in applying to Limestone College is encouraged to do so, such students may not be eligible for services as defined by PALS.

Mission
The mission of PALS is to provide academic support to those whose access to higher education has been difficult. Specifically, PALS is designed to enhance academic support services to students with diagnosed learning disabilities and/or ADD/ADHD in order that they may become independent and successful in an academic environment within three years after becoming enrolled in PALS at Limestone College.

It is unclear if the program is open to students with ASD’s. However, the school is also listed as “friendly” to students with ASD’s by Inside College.
