Learning Disabilities Services
Overview & Mission
The Office of Learning Disabilities Services is one of five units of the Bernard B. Rinella, Jr. Learning Center within the Division of Student Affairs. Learning Disabilities Services supports students with documented learning disabilities (LD) and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) and provide services designed to ensure access to University programs and curriculum. Support staff work with faculty and other university and community resources to ensure that reasonable and appropriate academic accommodations are available and provided.
The mission of the Office of Learning Disabilities Services is to ensure full and equal participation for persons with learning disabilities by: empowering individuals; promoting equal access; encouraging self-advocacy; reducing attitudinal, physical, and communication barriers; and providing appropriate accommodations. After eligibility is determined, the Office of Learning Disabilities staff are responsible for determining reasonable accommodations that will reduce barriers for students without lowering the academic standards of Miami University.
