According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, one in five people have a learning disability.
The dropout rate for students with learning disabilities is three times that of other students, making the need for resources crucial.
The Learning Diagnostic Clinic (LDC) at Missouri State University offers comprehensive testing for:
- Learning disabilities.
- And other psychological disorders that impact learning.
The clinic’s services are available to MSU students, staff, and adults and children from the community.
What is Project Success?
Alongside its testing services, LDC also has a program called Project Success for MSU students.
Project Success is designed for students who have been diagnosed with something that affects their education path.
“The intent of the program is to assist these students in fulfilling their goal of attending and completing college,” Program Director Steven Capps said.
The program offers academic and personal support to MSU students. Tutoring is offered alongside weekly meetings with a team member to discuss study skills, time management, organization, test-taking strategies and more.
