Since 1974, the Stroke and Disability Learning Center (SDLC) has provided an interdisciplinary educational program for adults who have survived a stroke or are living with disabling conditions. The SDLC is a unique program at Cabrillo College that starts where medical rehabilitation leaves off. Patients become students and enroll in specialized classes to develop strategies and gain skills in a supportive learning community.
The goal of the SDLC is to support independence and promote maximum function for adults adapting to functional losses. Students participate in small-group instruction in Mobility and Fitness, Speech and Communication and Counseling Support.
