The Kako’o Ike Program
Are you struggling with a disability, but still want a college education? Well then, you need to visit the Kako’o Ike program’s (KIP) office, located right beside the Learning Commons. The Kako’o Ike program accommodates people with disabilities and helps overcome the disadvantages they may face. Students should visit the Kako’o Ike program because it’s helpful, convenient, and effective.
The number one reason students should use the Kako’o Ike program is they are very helpful. The KIP is helpful by the way they will really work their best to provide aid for students. According to the KIP website they will, “Level the playing field to provide equal access to education for all.” (About Us, Par.2) This quote is trying to explain how they will really try and help get everyone equal opportunity. Therefore, this proves they are helpful because they try, no matter what, to help their students.
Another reason students need to visit the KIP is they’re very convenient. The way they’re convenient is how they will accomodate their students. According to the KIP’s pamphlet they will provide, “Audio textbooks, note-takers, testing alternatives, and extended time limits.”(Accomodations Support, Pg.2) This means that they will provide the student with extra help services. What this means is they will make learning and testing more convenient for their student.
The KIP is really beneficial to one’s success. In other words, they are very effective. In an interview with Kris G. Hernandez she told me that, “She will meet with you in person for better assessment to really help the individual.” She also said, “Students with disabilities have a higher success rate because of the extra tutoring time we provide.” What she is trying to say is that their services will really help an individual improve, and get through college with their services fitted for the individual. This basically means, she will help to make this program most effective for you.
The KIP is a really great program. If you give it a try it will most likely prove to be very beneficial to you or your friends. They will provide you with many types of physical aids. Truthfully, this program is awesome in the way they work hard for you and prove how they are helpful, convenient, and effective.
