CUSP Program

College and University Success Preparation (CUSP)

This half-day program is designed for local Windsor / Essex County high school students with ADHD or Learning Disability diagnoses.

CUSP (College and University Success Preparation), is a program designed to give high-school students with ADHD and/or a specific learning disability information to help them make decisions about their academic future.

If you are a student considering college or university anywhere in Ontario, why not spend a morning learning about the kinds of services and supports that will be available when you get there? After that, you're welcome to get to know us by scheduling a campus tour, meeting with a Disability Advisor, or exploring our campus on your own.

Students participating in this program can expect to:

  • hear success stories and advice from post-secondary students with ADHD/LD
  • learn about the support services available in college/university
  • learn about self-advocacy and how to find support
  • become aware of some differences between high-school and college/university
  • learn about technology that is available to students with LD
  • get resource information and be inspired to consider the possibility of university or college
