Bellarmine University Regional Assessment Clinic (BURAC)
The BURAC, which opened in January, 2009, is generously supported by the WHAS Crusade for Children. The mission of our clinic is twofold:
- The clinic serves as a foundational part of the preparation of Bellarmine students by providing authentic, hands-on experiences in educational assessment, design of instructional interventions and consultation with parents, students and families. In addition, the clinic provides training in state-of-the-art assistive technology (AT) equipment, software and other resources.
- Under the supervision of credentialed faculty, Bellarmine students conduct free academic assessments for youth aged 3 to 18 years of age and provide consultation services to parents/families, schools and other agencies. The BURAC also offers resources for educators and families in the Louisville area to support the needs of struggling learners and students with disabilities.
