This Learner Advocacy Seminar (LAS) is designed for students who benefit from support to address identified learning needs. These needs are specific to the goals identified in the individual Student Action Plan. During class time, students receive individualized instruction on specific skills to ensure the student acquires the tools to be a successful lifelong learner. Students will also have class time allotted to receive support in their core subjects depending on the areas of need. The primary aim of this course is to develop resilient, well-equipped, self-aware students; it is not to complete homework assignments. 

The focus is to develop self-awareness while utilizing specially designed instruction in a supportive environment. This course teaches skills such as self-advocacy, organization, and metacognition necessary for university or other career path choices while encouraging students to identify their strengths and individual learning needs.
