    This program is sponsored by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) with support from the local school district. 

    Learning Disabilities Learning Community

    The Learning Disabilities Learning Community is a special program for CCAC students who have a documented learning disability (LD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and who score into the college's developmental level math, reading or English courses.

    These classes are taught by department professors who have extensive experience with the needs of LD and ADD students. The learning community eases the transition into college. Applicants should apply to the College and take placement testing through the Supportive Services office on the Allegheny Campus.

    Learning Disabilities Summer Pre-College Program

    The Learning Disability Summer Pre-College Program is offered at the Allegheny Campus.

    Pre-college participants take SDS-110, First-Year Seminar and a college orientation course. The program is enhanced with an additional 15 hours of disability-related orientation.

    The summer program allows students with learning disabilities or Attention Deficit Disorder to become familiar with the campus and with the procedures for obtaining the help they need prior to the start of the college semester.

    Applicants should apply to the College and take placement testing through the Office of Supportive Services by May or early June.
