Disabled Students Programs and Services

Learning Disability Program


The Learning Disabilities Program is designed to assist students who have average to above average potential for learning but are not achieving their educational goals due to difficulties with reading, writing, spelling, or math. The goal of the program is to provide support services and accommodations which level the playing field for students to be successful in college level courses.

Typical learning disabilities include difficulties in a specific area such as reading comprehension, written expression, spelling, math, vocabulary, memory, auditory processing, visual processing, or any combination of the above.

DSPS Learning Disabilities Assessment

Interested in Learning Disability Testing?

DSPS offers learning disabilities testing at no cost for current IVC students. Students who are struggling academically but have never been identified with a learning disability, and who have no history of services may qualify for LD assessment.

To Request Testing You Must:

  • Be enrolled in at least one course at Irvine Valley College.
  • Complete the LD prescreening form in the DSPS Office.
  • The learning disability specialist will review the prescreening form and contact the student notifying them of the next step.
