Ursuline College is committed to helping students with learning disabilities (LD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) succeed in their courses and become independent learners. To help these students achieve success, the College has developed the FOCUS Program, a voluntary, comprehensive, fee-paid program for students with learning disabilities and ADHD. The FOCUS Program is aimed at providing a smooth transition into college life, helping students learn to apply the most appropriate learning strategies in college courses and teaching students self-advocacy skills; all through intensive one-on-one coaching with a disability specialist.
