Programs for Students with Disabilities

Promoting Academic Success (PAS)

SDS-102 PAS is a one credit course for high school seniors who desire an opportunity to explore post-secondary options. This is an enhanced orientation course specially designed for students with learning differences. Students will focus on effective strategies for transitioning from a high school setting to a post-secondary education.

The course is offered in the spring semester at the four campuses as well as West Hills Center. It meets once a week for eight sessions.

This program is sponsored by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) with support from the local school district.

Learning Disabilities Learning Community

The Learning Disabilities Learning Community is a special program for CCAC students who have a documented learning disability (LD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and who score into the college's developmental level math, reading or English courses.

These classes are taught by department professors who have extensive experience with the needs of LD and ADD students. The learning community eases the transition into college. Applicants should apply to the College and take placement testing through the Supportive Services office on the Allegheny Campus.
