ABLE stands for Academic Bridges to Learning Effectiveness.
Project ABLE is an educationally based, comprehensive learning support program designed specifically for students with psychological, learning, and neurological differences.
The purpose of the program is to provide a “bridge” between the structured and sometimes modified secondary-school setting to the predominantly self-directed college environment. This is accomplished through the creation and implementation of a student-centered success plan developed collaboratively with a Learning Support Specialist that includes the use of accommodations and services.
Although Centenary University does not modify its curriculum for students with disabilities, Project ABLE compliments a tradition of personalized, quality education which creates a high potential for a successful transition.
Project ABLE emphasizes:
- Personal responsibility
- Development of Self-help skills
- Personal Reflection
Project ABLE services include:
- Individual weekly meetings with a Learning Support Specialist
- Workshops (e.g. Should You Disclose Your Disability to Employers?)
- Access to Professional Tutors trained in how to best work with individuals with disabilities
- Group counseling (Bridges support group)
- Close academic monitoring
- Counseling for disability concerns
The fee for the program is determined on an annual basis. Students are given an opportunity to re-enroll or opt out of the program each semester around the end of the current semester. Students wishing to opt out of the program must do so in writing prior to the start of the next semester.
