SALT History and Profile Initially, the Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques (SALT) Center was founded during the 1980-1981 academic year, as a program within the Student Resource Center. At the time, SALT provided academic services and accommodations to three students with learning disabilities (LD). By 1993, the SALT Center became a free-standing department within the Division of Campus Life and was serving the needs of many students diagnosed with LD or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). As word got around, many students with learning disabilities were seeking out the support of the SALT Center. During the next decade, SALT Center was located in the basement of Old Main, utilizing 2,500 sq/ft. Because of the lack of space, SALT tutors conducted tutoring sessions around Old Main using the outside tables or at other quiet locations. In the Fall of 2001, SALT was able to relocate into its own 16,000 square foot building where over 500 students with learning disabilities (LD) and/or Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD) use SALT services including tutoring. SALT students receive individualized educational planning, assistance from trained tutors with course work, and an array of workshops geared toward the individual academic needs of these students. Additionally, students have the opportunity to use the SALT computer lab (complete with an array of assistive technology) and/or “drop-in” to either the SALT Writers Lab or the SALT Math Lab, both staffed with highly trained tutors. Upon requesting SALT services, each student is assigned to a Learning Specialist. These individuals assist students as they navigate through the University of Arizona. Each Learning Specialist is an individual who demonstrates encouraging, accepting, and nonjudgmental behaviors creating a secure environment for students to prosper. This safe atmosphere also enables students to successfully collaborate with Learning Specialists to create a unique learning plan, entitled Individualized Learning Plans (ILP). Each

especially designed ILP is created to meet the postsecondary environmental needs of the student. The Individualized Learning Plans (ILP) offer an integrated approach to Tutoring, Writing Support, and Educational Planning. To create an ILP, the Learning Specialist uses the unique student profile of strengths, weaknesses, and learning challenges along with the student’s current semester needs. The Learning Specialist and the student define the array of services and define them in the ILP. Thus, each ILP provides the student with information on strategies to approach course work; recommendations for tutor usage; and, as appropriate, referrals to other U of A campus resources. As the semester progresses, the Learning Specialist will use information gathered from weekly discussions with the student to evaluate the student’s progress, needs, and outcomes. The ILP will then be adjusted accordingly. In addition to supporting postsecondary students at the U of A, the SALT Center is also involved in outreach efforts to the U of A Campus as well as to the surrounding local area. Over the years, the SALT Center has collaborated with other U of A departments, as well as local Tucson agencies, to support the academic advancement of local students. SALT firmly believes all students with LD and/or ADD should be encouraged to pursue post high school options, including community college, as well as 4-year institutions. And what about the name? According to SALT oral history, one student said, "As students with learning disabilities, we need a little more seasoning;" hence the name, SALT. Actually, SALT stands for "Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques." These terms were chosen to reflect the process many of our students experience as they meet the daily academic challenges of educational settings. SALT believes that learning involves the process of identifying one’s strengths and weaknesses, learning preferences, and creating strategies that will enable one to be successful. Because learning is a life-long process occurring in many environments, one has to be able to self-

monitor and alter choices to accommodate and assimilate new knowledge. Thus, SALT offers students many opportunities for students to learn about themselves as well as available resources. There is no right combination of strategies; each student determines their own strategic alternative learning techniques.
