Accessibility Services

We assist students in obtaining equitable access to education when a disability is identified and documented. This may include learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and/or emotional and psychological disabilities. Accessibility Services provides accommodations, supports, and services for qualified students. This may include:

  • tutor support
  • note taking assistance such as in class note taker, LiveScribe Pen, Notability and more
  • exam accommodations that are tooled to your specific needs, which may include extra time, distraction reduced space, scribe, reader, or other options
  • the use of specialized software such as Read & Write Gold, Dragon Naturally Speaking, Kurzweil, and more

Accessing Accommodation: We help students and instructors identify barriers and the strategies to accommodate for these by providing accommodations, support and services. As each student may require different accommodations due to their documented disability, the first step is to book an appointment with Accessibility Services to review your needs. Book your appointment before the semester starts if possible, as it may take some time to set up your accommodations and supports. Appointments are also available throughout the academic year.

Registering as a Student with a Disability

  1. Complete the Services for Students with Disabilities registration form.

  2. Submit all relevant assessments and documentation from previous schools, medical professionals (doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists or other specialists) to Accessibility Services. Documentation should be current (3-5 years) in order to be considered relevant.

  3. Book an appointment with Accessibility Services to identify accommodations, supports or services that may be available.
