We are incredibly proud of PAL, our internationally recognized Program for Advancement of Learning. Recognized as the country’s first program of its kind, celebrating a longstanding tradition of success, PAL provides academically focused assistance to bright, college-able students with specific language-based learning disabilities, executive function disorders, and/or AD/HD.
PAL students are fully mainstreamed in their classes and receive additional support on a proactive basis. Students work in individual and/or small classes with a PAL faculty member developing strategies in areas such as reading comprehension, written language, speaking, listening, organization, and time management.
Each incoming PAL student will have an opportunity to purchase an iPad, or place a deposit on one to use, as part of their PAL programming. Along with this invaluable resource, the PAL Assistive Technology Center offers PAL students a variety of technology tools that have been shown to benefit students with learning differences.
Our PAL Program is abuzz year-round, especially in the summer! Summer PAL will be held virtually in 2021, and we are offering a variety of newly redesigned virtual opportunities for accepted PAL students to get a kick start on their college education. Register today - seats fill up quickly!
The parents' role in supporting independence is to allow students to advocate for themselves. This is sometimes a difficult transition for parents who have been strong, successful advocates. Parents can help by encouraging the use of PAL for assistance and guidance.
