Our Mission

The Regents Center for Learning Disorders at Georgia Southern (RCLD), one of three Centers established by the Georgia Board of Regents, provides assessments, resources, as well as research related to students within the University System who have learning disorders. Students attending any of the public colleges and universities in the state of Georgia are eligible for these evaluations at their respective center.

Assessment: Comprehensive standardized assessments for students with learning problems due to a suspected LD and/or ADHD, are used to provide students with a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, to address specific requests for accommodations, and to make appropriate recommendations.

Resources:  Resources, program, and policy development for each institution of the university system for which the RCLD is responsible, are provided through consultation, workshops, and/or training and assistance to each Disability Service Provider.

Research:  The RCLD provides a unique setting for academic research and clinical training for graduate level students in psychology and related programs.


USG Disability Documentation Guidelines provides information for students with LD or ADHD.
