The course will examine the legal foundations for students with disabilities in higher education, provide a framework for understanding the unique needs of students with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, mental health issues, as well as those on the autism spectrum, and examine the role of academic advisors in helping these individuals be successful thriving college students.
