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
