Student Support Groups
Health Condition Support Group
This is a fantastic student organized group only for students registered with our office with health conditions. The goal of the group is for people to come together with others who understand having a health condition.
Eye to Eye Student Mentoring Program
Eye to Eye is a mentoring program that pairs college students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD with similarly labeled local middle school students. Each week, college mentors use basic art projects and one-on-one time to help students develop strategies to succeed in the classroom. You will be a role model to middle school students and help them value their learning differences, build their self-esteem, and have a voice in their education.
The Connections Group
The Connection group is committed to providing students who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) across the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with the chance to discover new ways to further their school-community involvement along with developing connections with peers. The Connection group will plan on meeting one day per week for approximately one hour.
