Disability Resource Center and Veterans Resource Center Team Up to Support Veterans

DRC and VRCOn October 5, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and Veterans Resource Center (VRC) joined forces to provide student veterans with breakfast and important information on resources available to them.

Adjunct Learning Disability Specialist, Patty Blankenship, provided study tips and learning strategies geared to students who have experienced Post-Traumatic Stress or Traumatic Brain Injury. Assistive Technology Specialist, Judy Lariviere, was on hand to show veterans the types of technology that may help improve their comprehension both in class and on tests.  The DRC and VRC were recently awarded a grant to provide students with a license for a note taker technology called Sonocent Audio NoteTaker.  Students were also able to demo the technology at the event.
