Pursuing college not only opens the opportunity for self-discovery on a personal level, but also provides the opportunity to explore how YOU learn best. In this module, we will highlight different learning styles and tools that you might wish to try. It is important to remember that no learning style is better than another learning style. In fact, you may find that you identify with more than one learning style and that is okay! The goal is for you to become more self-aware with how you learn so that you can apply this knowledge as you complete classes and apply for jobs.
Check out the activities below:
Points to Remember
- Understand what your learning style is, how it impacts you and how to use it to your advantage when studying.
- Teachers are there to help you, ask for their help as soon as you do not understand something or feel yourself falling behind.
- Do not be afraid to use the accommodations that you need to succeed with your disability. If you feel that you need an accommodation - speak up, now.
- Assistive Technology (AT) can be very beneficial both at school and home. Ask an adult for resources to help you explore the vast world of AT.
