When it comes to college admissions and admissions testing, some students will face challenges stemming from individual learning differences. These students can benefit from specific interventions to help them optimize performance on admissions tasks and tests such as the SAT and ACT. Students with ADHD may need to shift their approach, working to self-regulate their attention using a variety of techniques. Students with executive function issues or dyslexia may also benefit from strategic adjustments. Let’s examine the most common learning differences you may come across in your practice and discuss how to coach your students to reach their peak performance.
