What We Do
Assessment of Learning Needs
The office conducts screening and (in)formal assessments to identify any learning challenges that would hinder the student’s academic performance.
Learning Support Plan (LSP)
A brief Learning Support Plan (LSP) is created for each student based on their specific learning needs. This document focuses on accommodations and modifications to be accorded to the student.
Accommodations or adjustments are set on a case-by-case basis, individualized to each student and their current learning needs. Academic adjustments are planned to provide students equal access to the university’s academic curriculum.
General Academic Support
The OLS offers all Ashoka students a variety of general academic support services that are designed to help them maximize their academic success. These support services include time management skills & planning, effective academic learning strategies and overall executive functioning skills such as self-management and metacognition among others.
The office acts as a case manager for a student who requests support. It coordinates with concerned authorities for possible intervention.
The OLS is a resource centre for learning strategies and for assistive technology solutions to support students with specific learning needs. It aims to use the latest assistive technology tools for academic and physical accessibility.
The OLS organizes several events and workshops to spread awareness and sensitize the Ashoka community members towards various disabilities. This has been done in the past by observing several Disability Awareness days and Guest Speaker sessions. Workshops included Sign Language learning, Demystifying Dyslexia, Accessible Content Creation session, etc.
