PAL Academic Experience
Students in PAL are fully mainstreamed in their classes and receive additional support on a proactive basis. Students work in individual and/or small classes with a PAL faculty member developing strategies in areas such as reading comprehension, written language, speaking, listening, organization, and time management.
Technology and Accommodations
Each incoming student in PAL will have access to specialized instruction in web-based educational applications to aid in their learning, as part of their PAL curriculum. Along with this invaluable resource, the PAL Assistive Technology (AT) Center offers students in PAL a variety of technology tools that have been shown to benefit students with learning differences.

Guidance for PAL Parents
The parents' role in supporting independence is to allow students to advocate for themselves. This is sometimes a difficult transition for parents who have been strong, successful advocates. Parents can help by encouraging the use of PAL for assistance and guidance.

When Jackson Greeno was approaching the end of his high school career, he was doubtful that he would continue his formal education any further. As someone who has struggled with learning differences such as dyslexia, anxiety, and attention-deficit disorder, he was fearful that the support he received in high school wouldn’t translate into higher education. That was, until he discovered the Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) at Curry College.
