Learning Disabilities Assessment

The Learning Disabilities Specialist provides diagnostic testing and recommendations to enrolled WCC students who suspect they may have a learning disability and who have not been tested previously, or whose testing is outdated.

The Goal:
To assess and identify educational needs, assist students in learning strategies, and help all students develop the confidence to reach their potential.

Testing Times:
Testing assessment times are arranged by appointment. The LD Specialist is not available while testing, so you are encouraged to call in advance for an appointment if possible.

Services Provided:
    • Provide consultation for students experiencing learning difficulties.

    • Conduct cognitive and achievement testing and make recommendations based on test results.

    • Advise students on learning strategies appropriate to their specific learning disabilities.

    • Recommend accommodations appropriate to students' specific learning disabilities.

    • Provide information on other conditions (e.g., Attention Deficit Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury) that may also interfere with learning.

    • Refer students to appropriate campus resources (e.g., Learning Support Services, Counseling, Career Planning and Placement) and coordinate student needs with appropriate staff.

    • Make referrals to outside agencies (e.g., Michigan Rehabilitation Services).

Referrals to the LD specialist may be initiated by students (self-referral), or by instructors, staff, or outside agencies.
