Accessible Learning Services

"Accessible Learning Services facilitates equal access for students with disabilities by coordinating academic accommodations and services.

We work collaboratively with students and faculty to ensure that the academic environment is accessible.

When barriers to learning are identified, we offer a range of supports including academic accommodations, assistive technology training and learning supports." (source)

 

 

What Type of Documentation is Needed?

"Accommodations are determined with your Accessibility Consultant based on your needs, your program requirements and documentation.

Documentation is helpful to support your need for accommodations. Depending on the accommodation need, our office may ask for additional, updated, or more specific documentation.
Individual Education Plan (IEP)

We will accept an IEP temporarily for basic academic accommodations until more documentation is obtained. It is not sufficient proof of permanent disability status for OSAP." (source)

"Medical / Mental Health Conditions:

If your documentation is not complete, you may wish to take Humber's Report of Medical / Mental Health Condition for Academic Accommodations to your doctor to be filled out.
