St. Ambrose University Summer Transition Program



The Summer Transition Program helps students with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder or Asperger's syndrome develop the skills necessary for a successful college career. Depending on the year, students enroll in one three-credit introductory course in either psychology or sociology. In small-group review sessions each morning, staff members assist students with writing assignments and test preparation. Afternoon study skills and tutoring sessions provide instruction in note taking, textbook reading, memorization and other study skills. Academic orientation and self-advocacy seminars, held twice weekly, help students access university and community resources and develop skills that will ease the transition to college life. Students live in residence halls, play recreational sports on campus and visit local attractions.
