Mission Statement

Learning Plus (L+) facilitates equal opportunities for academic achievement for students with diagnosed learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum, and /or acquired brain injury at the University of Hartford. The mission of L+ is to help students who have disabilities learn how to manage their disabilities instead of being managed by them.

OBJECTIVES:

  • To help students understand their learning strengths and weaknesses, and to use this information to guide their academic and career decisions
  • To help students advocate for themselves
  • To help students develop decision-making skills
  • To provide students with learning strategies so they may function independently in the academic environment
  • To furnish faculty and students with information regarding LD/ADHD/ASD/ABI including classroom accommodations and testing modifications, and legal rights and responsibilities.
  • To serve as a liaison between students and faculty
  • To facilitate appropriate testing accommodations when needed
  • To protect the confidentiality of student documentation
  • To assist students in connecting with other resources on campus

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • Learning Plus is voluntary.
    It is the student's responsibility to initially contact L+ and to maintain contact.
  • Accommodations and services are not automatic.
    All accommodations are determined on a case-by-case, course-by-course basis.
  • Learning specialists are NOT content tutors.
    Learning specialists provide instruction in learning and metacognitive strategies.  Mastering specific course material may necessitate that the student meet with a content-specific tutor. Obtaining content tutors is the student's responsibility. 
  • It is the student's responsibility to disclose his/her disability to professors.
    Learning Plus will provide the student with a Letter of Disclosure, which may be used to initiate the process. This promotes self-advocacy.
  • Taking tests/exams at Learning Plus is a privilege and must be arranged in a timely fashion.
    In order to utilize test accommodations, the L+ staff and the professor must be notified at least 5 business days in advance of the test/exam through a specific process. L+ follows the University's guidelines for academic honesty. Students who do not follow appropriate procedures and/or guidelines may be denied testing privileges.
