LD Project

The mission of the Learning Disabilities Project is to develop students’ self-understanding of their own strengths and limitations. The Learning Disabilities Project addresses these needs by assisting students in receiving evaluations, and reviewing their learning disability assessments in a supportive and friendly environment. Furthermore, trainings for faculty and staff at CUNY are provided on a regular basis to support the continued growth of our students.

In 2009 the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) published a report that 5% of all students in public schools are identified as having a learning disability. As the numbers rise, the responsibility of colleges to provide supports that meet the needs of students with learning disabilities increase.

The LD Project is a CUNY wide project that is housed in Hostos Community College. For more information about upcoming professional development workshops, available LD related resources, or inquires regarding student evaluations, contact Chris Fleming or click the icon below:
