What are Accommodations? 

Accommodations are intended to equalize a student’s opportunity to meet essential program and course requirements. In high school you have called it an IEP or a disability accommodation.  Providing accommodations invites collaboration between the student, Accessible Learning Services, and Instructors/Professors as part of our shared duty to accommodate students with disabilities. Accessible Learning Services has documentation on file that supports these accommodations. 

Examples of Accommodations 

  • Extra time for testing
  • Course materials available in alternate formats
  • Use of assistive technology (Kurzweil, Dragon, Read and Write, Large Print, etc.
  • Note-taking support
  • Accessibility Counsellor appointments
