Role descriptions

Accessible Learning Services Front Desk

Our front desk is often the first point of contact with ALS. It facilitates ALS intakes and provides assistance around documentation of disability. The Front Desk is available to assist students with scheduling their ALS appointments.

Accessibility Counsellor

Within the framework of a case management model, the Accessibility Counsellor works with students to develop Academic Accommodations to address a student's accommodation needs. Working collaboratively with an Accessibility Counsellor involves discussions of student strengths, and how strengths are used to compensate for areas of challenge in an effort to mitigate the impact a disability may have on a program of study. Accessibility Counsellors work closely with professors and College service areas to support a student's accommodation needs.

Adaptive Technologist and Learning Skills Advisor

The Adaptive Technologist and Learning Skills Advisor uses a student-centred, strengths­ based approach in supporting students. The focus of the Adaptive Technologist/Learning Skills Advisor is to promote autonomy and efficiency in learning through the use of technology and learning skills.

Accessibility Navigator

The Accessibility Navigator assists students with intake, registration, and document submission. The Accessibility Navigator also answers questions from students and the community on the range of services and accommodations offered through ALS.

Accessibility Support Officer

The Accessibility Support Officer supports both the Accessibility Counsellor and students by facilitating timely access to ALS services. The Accessibility Support Officer helps students navigate the supports available within the College and the procedures of ALS.

ALS Technician

The ALS Technician supports accessing, converting and obtaining course material in the alternative format required by the student.

The ALS Technician also supports students with borrowing and returning ALS equipment and technology and oversees the running of the ALS student workspace, Learning Technology Education Centre.
