Fairleigh Dickinson University has long been a leader in the support of education for students with learning disabilities.
The learning specialists in FDU’s Regional Center are all professional staff with graduate level training in learning disabilities. The counselors in the program are required to hold the minimum of a master’s degree in counseling.
The Regional Center at FDU is committed to the ongoing training and development of FDU staff and faculty, providing regular opportunities for education and information-sharing. Faculty and key personnel from such areas as admissions, student services, residence life and the library are regularly offered opportunities to become better informed of the Center’s program and involved in its support. Extensive faculty training has been conducted at each campus and ongoing faculty training occurs as the Center is asked to provide presentations at departmental meetings.
