How to Make a Referral
Students can self-refer to our services. They’ll be asked to complete a New Student Intake Form and provide supporting documentation. We are happy to work with students on an interim basis while they are getting documentation sorted out.
We are happy to support students with temporary disabilities such as broken bones, concussions, major medical conditions, and mental health difficulties.
If there is a suspected learning disability or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, we have a screening package available at our front desk. Students will be asked to complete a short referral form and then given a package to complete on their own time. When the completed package is returned, we’ll set up a time to review the results and discuss whether a full assessment is warranted (and how to go about accessing one).
When a student is asking for accommodations on the basis of a disability, it is appropriate to ask if they are registered with SAS. If they are not registered or not aware of our services, you might suggest that it is the role of SAS to help determine the most appropriate accommodations to meet their needs. We can also help to anticipate future needs, and reduce the pressure to disclose personal information over and over again. Ultimately, our goal is to support student success.
If there is uncertainty about whether or not our services are a good fit for the student’s needs, we are happy to offer a consultation. Please use our contact information to get in touch.
