Does anyone know how good this program is?


ACHIEVE PROGRAM
The Clinical Center Achieve Program is a comprehensive academic support program for college students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorders at SIUC. The Program is self-supportive and participation is voluntary and confidential. The Program is an institutional part of the University, but separate from the University's Disability Support Services office. Achieve is a partial cost recovery program, and as such, charge fees for the comprehensive services provided. Achieve provides extensive support services for its members, including:

Mentoring/advocacy
General and specialized tutoring
Note takers
Readers
Adapted textbooks
Remediation
Proctored testing
Writing class
Computer laboratory
Organizational training
To be considered for the program, high school students must complete both application materials for Achieve and application to the University. The application is thoroughly reviewed by Achieve staff. If applicants appear to be appropriate for services, test dates are offered. There is a non-refundable fee for testing.

If the results of the 2-day psycho-educational evaluation reveal that students' educational needs can be met by services provided through Achieve, they will be eligible for services through the Clinical Center Achieve Program. More information about the office may be found at http://www.siu.edu/~achieve/index.html

A side-by-side comparison of services offered by the Achieve Program and Disability Support Services to students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorders is available at http://www.siu.edu/~dss/Achieve_vs_DSS.htm.
