Everyday Services & Programs
Each student who is registered with SAS is connected with an Advisor. This professional staff member meets with students on a one-on-one basis to discuss accommodation needs and offer individual coaching.
Sometimes one of the best ways of getting support is to talk with peers who have similar experiences. We offer a number of support groups where students can explore the ways their lives are affected by their disabilities, and to uncover strategies for achieving their goals.
In partnership with the Psychology Department, SAS offers two courses that may be counted as electives towards one's degree. PSYC*1300 is specifically for students with a learning disability and PSYC*1400 is for students with a mental health disability.
For students who have difficulty with taking notes in class, the SAS Note Taking Office can assist with notes from volunteers.
The Rec Club is offered in collaboration with the Department of Athletics and helps students with disabilities with access to recreational athletic facilities.
In the event that a student suspects that they have a learning disability and/or ADHD, Student Accessibility Services offers a screening program to determine whether a full psycho-educational assessment might be warranted. We will also help students with navigating the process of getting an assessment when appropriate.
Finally, some disabilities make it more difficult to navigate the campus. Accessibility Guides, who are student volunteers, can help with getting to class, meals, or finding your way to various buildings.
