Project Success--A Remedial Program for Postsecondary Learning Disabled Students.
Nash, Robert T.; And Others
This paper discusses the major components of Project Success, a nationally recognized learning disabilities (LD) support program on the campus of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Its goals include: each student will become academically and socially independent; each student will graduate from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh or some other postsecondary institution; and each student will maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better. The Project Success language remediation program, social remediation program, transitional program, and academic year remediation program are described. Because of the remedial focus, this program is unique among the many programs for postsecondary LD students. An important goal is to raise the language and social skills of its participants to a point that they are capable of functioning independently within 2 to 7 semesters after entering the program. Its success is best reflected by the fact that to date 84 students have graduated from some other four-year postsecondary institution. Further, 71% of all students who have enrolled in the program have either graduated or are presently pursuing a baccalaureate degree. Appended are: a Project Success summer schedule; job descriptions for the director and associate director; copies of articles about the program; a course syllabus; and a course syllabus format. Contains 34 references. (Author/SM)
