Student Disability Services has partnered with Raider Ready to offer SDS facilitated sections of the IS 1100: Raider Ready course. These SDS sections are designed to help students with disabilities in the transition to college life and academics. These sections are taught by Student Disability Services and TECHniques Center staff members and provide another opportunity to help students registered with SDS to connect with our office. For more information or to enroll, please contact Tamara Mancini at (806) 742-2405.
Learning disabilities are neurologically based and may interfere with the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, or mathematical skills. They affect the manner in which individuals with average or above average intellectual abilities process and/or express information. A learning disability may be characterized by a marked discrepancy between intellectual potential and academic achievement resulting from difficulties with processing information. The effects may change depending upon the learning demands and environments and may manifest in a single academic area or impact performance across a variety of subject areas and disciplines.
