Support Programs for At-Risk and Learning Disabled at Muskingum College.
Navicky, Jen; And Others
The Center for the Advancement of Learning was established at Muskingum College (Ohio) in 1991 to coordinate services to disabled, at-risk, and international students. The Center has developed the PLUS Program and the PASS Program. The PLUS Program is a special support program for students with learning disabilities, which provides individual and group tutoring and coordinates such services as extended time testing and textbook taping. The PASS Program, which is available to all students, includes weekly workshops on learning strategies, personal half-hour strategy sessions, and a drop-in clinic for specific problems. Services to international students include workshops on time management and professor and advisor expectations. This report describes the Center's philosophy and orientation, background information on learning strategies, a profile of PLUS students, and results of a survey of PLUS graduates. Appended to the report are various assessment forms, a workshop schedule, and administrative items. (Contains 12 references.) (JDD)
