Learning Strategy Instruction is available to undergraduate and gradate students with learning disabilities and attention disorders.
Students may work with a learning strategist to:
learn to use their psychoeducational assessment report to understand their unique pattern of cognitive strengths and weaknesses
develop various skills to facilitate reading, studying, learning new information, note-taking, essay writing, and exam writing
learn to monitor their progress, reflect on the effectiveness of their plans, and make changes as necessary
work towards a better understanding of their capabilities in different environments, and thereby strengthen their ability to self-advocate at University and in the workplace.
Students who would like to work with the learning strategist should inform their SSD counsellor or the receptionist (519 661-2147; firstname.lastname@example.org). Students may be asked to provide more information by filling out a questionnaire prior to their appointment
