The BUILD Program

Bridge to University for Individuals with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD (BUILD)

The BUILD Program was created to ease the transition to university for students with documented learning disabilities and/or ADHD. During this free program, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Get a head start on their orientation to campus life while exploring the unique opportunities and challenges faced by students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD
  • Learn about the variety of services and supports available on campus and through Student Accessibility Services
  • Discover valuable techniques, strategies, and technology to help maximize their learning potential
  • Meet and socialize with fellow students, colleagues, and university staff and faculty
  • Learn how to navigate the University‚Äôs main websites
  • Have opportunities to participate in additional learning skills workshops at strategic points throughout the semester

To participate in the BUILD Program, students must:

  • have been granted admission to the University of Windsor
  • possess documentation suggesting the presence of a learning disability or ADHD. For the purposes of BUILD Program participation only, this can take the form of an IPRC report, IEP summary, or a psycho educational assessment report
  • submit a completed BUILD Program application by the posted deadline

The BUILD Program will hold live webcam workshops on the following dates. Students must participate in 1 workshop each week; there will be a total of 3 different workshops starting at the beginning of each week. Each workshop is repeated 3 times a week to help ensure participation (you only need to watch one workshop per week, depending on the time that works best for you).

Each workshop will be 1 hour and 20 minutes to mock the most common timeframe of University classes. Students must complete a total of 4 hours from the 3 different workshops.
