Everyone learns differently. 但, for many bright and talented students with learning disabilities, 注意力缺陷多动症, 和/或自闭症, the mainstream educational system presents obstacles that are difficult to negotiate.
While many colleges and universities now offer academic support programs for students who learn differently, none compare to Landmark College’s comprehensive mission and integrated curriculum. Our programs are fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and our curriculum is as rigorous as other institutions of higher learning. 但 Landmark College is different: We have over 3 decades of experience designing programs and pedagogy for our students. More importantly, we believe you can succeed.
- Demystify the learning process and make instruction both explicit and recursive
- Help students develop self-understanding and self-efficacy by encouraging the development of individualized strategies that support student learning
- Provide students with the support they need in and out of the classroom. At Landmark, there’s no need to “fight the system” or ask for special accommodations. We show students how to become effective self-advocates and use supporting resources effectively.
- Constantly develop innovative and student-centered best practices in learning disability, 注意力缺陷多动症, and ASD education—and share them with other educators—through the Landmark College Institute for 研究 and 培训 (LCIRT)
The Instructional Experience
在地标学院, we individualize instruction within a range of disciplinary courses and programs. The overall student to faculty/support ratio is 6 – 1 and small classes (generally, 6 – 15 students) provide opportunities for individual attention while still engaging students in a collaborative learning experience. Every Landmark College class focuses on optimizing student learning, with explicit mechanisms for academic support through office hours, experienced academic advisors, and dedicated support centers with professional staff.
Landmark College’s faculty are not only subject matter experts in their discipline—recognized nationally in their fields through their re搜索, 出版物, and presentations—but they are also deeply invested in understanding diagnostic profiles, best practices in pedagogical design, and interpersonal communication. They possess a strong dedication to helping students who learn differently to succeed.
