who we see
The Academic Skills Clinic works with children, youth, and young adults from pre-kindergarten to college age who have individual academic needs. Students with a wide range of profiles may fit under this broad umbrella. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Students who are not achieving to their full potential.
- Students diagnosed with or suspected of having a specific learning disability in one or more academic areas
- Students with gifts and talents, with or without academic difficulties
- Students with academic difficulties that are secondary to other developmental or genetic disorders (e.g., ADHD, Asperger's Disorder, Fragile X, Turner's Syndrome)
- Children adopted from overseas
- Students with speech or language difficulties (e.g., childhood apraxia of speech, specific language impairment, phonological disorder)
- Students whose poor organizational skills and/or attentional capacities interfere with their academic progress.
- High school and college students with a history of learning difficulties who are struggling academically or who need assessments for program or test accommodation eligibility.
- Students who fall into one or more of these categories (e.g., students with dual exceptionalities and students with complex learning profiles).
