The Board of Regents (BOR) of the University System of Georgia (USG) has established three Regents Centers for Learning Disorders (RCLDs) for the provision of assessment, resources, and research related to students who have learning disorders that impact academic, cognitive and/or behavioral/emotional functioning.
- Regents Center for Learning Disorders at Georgia Southern University
- Regents Center for Learning Disorders at Georgia State University
- Regents Center for Learning Disorders at the University of Georgia
Each RCLD is responsible for serving designated colleges and universities within a geographic region (referring institutions). The RCLDs were created in response to a need to establish uniformity across the colleges and universities in the USG in the identification of students with learning disorders. It is the goal of the RCLDs to provide all students in the USG with access to a comprehensive evaluation to document possible learning disorders at a reasonable cost.
The Regents Centers for Learning Disorders provide:
- Comprehensive standardized assessments for students with learning disorders;
- Review of documentation submitted by referring institutions in support of student requests for accommodations;
- Recommendations regarding appropriate accommodations and services;
- Assistance to students, faculty and staff at referring institutions through consultation, networking, and program development;
- Clinical training opportunities in graduate level psychology, education, and related programs; and
- Research focusing on assessment and accommodation of students with disabilities in postsecondary settings.
