A Closer Look at the SALT Center, University of Arizona

Transitioning into higher education can be a thrilling yet daunting experience, especially for students with diverse learning needs. However, if you plan on attending The University of Arizona or considering colleges with solid support systems.

The Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques (SALT) Center at the University of Arizona offers comprehensive support tailored to your unique strengths and challenges.

Recently, I had the pleasure of hosting a dynamic VLOG session with Brittany Cortinas from the SALT Center, where we delved into the invaluable services they provide, the ideal candidate for their program, and tips for a seamless transition into college life.

The SALT Center: Your Gateway to Success

The SALT Center is a beacon of support for students with various learning and attention differences. They aim to empower students to achieve academic and personal goals through innovative learning techniques and personalized support services.

From academic coaching and tutoring to assistive technology and skill-building workshops, the SALT Center offers a holistic approach to student success. Whether you're grappling with time management, navigating course material, or seeking accommodation support, their dedicated team is committed to helping you thrive in the collegiate environment.

Who's the Ideal Candidate?

While their services cater to a diverse range of students, they specialize in supporting individuals with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and other related challenges. If you're motivated to excel academically but could benefit from personalized support and strategies, then the SALT Center might be your perfect ally.

Smooth Transitions: Tips for College Success

During our insightful discussion, Brittany shared invaluable tips to ease this transition:

  1. Know Yourself: Take the time to understand your learning style, strengths, and areas for growth. Self-awareness is key to utilizing the resources available at the SALT Center effectively.

  2. Reach Out Early: Be sure to seek support before you're struggling. Reach out to the SALT Center and other campus resources as soon as possible to establish a solid support network.

  3. Stay Organized: Develop effective time management and organizational skills to stay on top of your academic responsibilities. Utilize planners, apps, or whichever tools work best for you.

  4. Advocate for Yourself: Don't hesitate to communicate your needs to professors and seek appropriate accommodations through the SALT Center's guidance.

  5. Embrace Growth: College is a time for exploration and growth. Be open to new experiences, challenges, and personal and academic development opportunities.
