Project Overview

Comprehensive Support for STEM Students with Learning Disability (CS3LD) is a four-year interdisciplinary research project that has been creating, refining, and testing a multi-level model (personal, interpersonal, and institutional) for supporting the success of students with LD majoring in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), including social, behavioral and economic (SBE) sciences.

Funded by the National Science Foundation (HRD-1246587) in 2012, CS3LD has brought together faculty members and graduate students in the Colleges of Engineering, Health & Human Performance, Agriculture & Life Sciences, and Public Health & Health Professions to provide comprehensive support through structured mentorship and learning activities. CS3LD began recruiting study participants in February 2013, and the first Cohort of research participants began project activities in the Fall 2013 semester. Four Cohorts of study participants have been recruited, with the final Cohort of the research project recruited for the Fall 2016 semester.
