Learning Assistance Center

Special Equipment

The Learning Assistance Center has a computer station with a large monitor and Kurzweil software installed. This program may be used for print enlargement of any textbook. 

Kurzweil may only be used by students trained and certified in its operation.  The scanner attached to the assistive station may only be used by students bearing this certification.  There is another scanner at an adjoining station that all students may use.

Phonic Ears are available for same-day checkout and return.  These devices enhance sound, helping hearing impaired students better track with the instructor's lecture.  Students need a current contract with DSP&S (Disabled Students Program and Services) in order to use the Phonic Ear.
