Learning Disabilities Program

The Learning Disabilities Program (LDP) is a comprehensive academic support program for undergraduate students whose primary disability is a learning disability and/or attention deficit disorder. 

Each student meets with his or her learning disabilities specialist for two hours weekly. This regular schedule of individual meetings ensures the dynamic, personal, and intensive character that makes the program successful.

Content for sessions is drawn directly from the student’s course work. Skills addressed may include executive function skills (e.g. time management and planning), metacognitive skills (e.g. goal setting), studying and test-taking strategies, reading, writing, access of accommodations, and use of campus resources.

Northeastern University was named by Huffington Post as one of the 10 Colleges with the BEST learning disability programs

Please note: Basic accommodations for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder are provided at no cost by the Disability Resource Center (DRC). Additional information is available at (617) 373-2675.
