Disability Resource Center

Disability Resource Center

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) has been a part of the Northeastern University campus since 1978. The DRC is dedicated to partnering with the diverse population of students, staff, and faculty at Northeastern and in the surrounding community. They strive to provide exemplary service, education, and resources in the work that they do. Their guiding principles are informed by federal law regarding disability and privacy, by the University’s policies on equal opportunity, non-discrimination, and the Student Code of Conduct, and also by the rights and the individual needs of the people who we serve.

The DRC provides students with appropriate services and can advocate as needed within the wider University community. At the same time, our goal is to promote independence and self-advocacy within each individual. At the college level, seeking and receiving support and accommodations through the Disability Resource Center is a student-initiated process.

Learning Disabilities Program

The Learning Disabilities Program (LDP) is a comprehensive tutorial program for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders.

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 time management, organization, reading comprehension, expository writing, research and study skills, and self-advocacy.
