Follow steps 1 – 3 to register with Accessibility Services for academic accommodations.
Step 1: Obtain required documentation
Obtain documentation of your disability. The required documentation depends on the nature of your specific disability or disabilities.
For most cases, the required documentation will be the Certificate of Disability (PDF).
This should be completed by a health care practitioner who is familiar with your disability, whose scope of practice includes your disability and who is licensed to make a diagnosis. Doctors at Health & Wellness provide disability documentation services when appropriate and where they have assessed and/or treated the student for relevant disability-related concerns.
Read the following sections to determine what documentation you will need in order to register:
- Acquired brain injury or concussion
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
- Chronic health, mental health, sensory disabilities (including D/deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing) and physical disabilities
- Learning disabilities
- Temporary physical disability
- Not sure if you have a disability?
Step 2: Complete our online Student Intake Form
Have your required documentation (e.g. the Certificate of Disability (PDF), recent medical documentation for concussions, brain injuries and/or temporary physical disabilities, or a psycho-educational or neuro-psychological assessment and any supplemental or additional documentation related to your disability) available in a scanned PDF or similar format before filling out the Student Intake Form.
Set aside 30 minutes to complete the online Student Intake Form without interruption. Provide information in all required fields and when instructed attach your required documentation. NOTE: You will not be able to save and return to the form.
If you are unsure of which documentation you need, or require accommodations or assistance in completing the Student Intake Form, contact our front desk at email@example.com or 416-978-8060.
Step 3: Attend an Intake Appointment
After you submit a complete Student Intake Package, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment with an accessibility advisor.
The accessibility advisor will review your Student Intake Package and discuss any barriers or difficulties you have been experiencing in your academic progress to develop effective accommodations.
The full process for registering with Accessibility Services is available on the Accessibility Services registration and documentation requirements page.
