If you are experiencing difficulties affecting your learning in lectures, labs or tutorials due to a temporary physical disability, we encourage you to register with Accessibility Services for academic accommodations. Accessibility Services supports students registered in courses on the St. George campus. An example of a temporary physical disability is an injured or broken limb.
To register with Accessibility Services you will need to provide the following:
- the Certificate of Disability (PDF) completed by a health care practitioner familiar with your disability who is licensed to make a diagnosis
- recent medical documentation from an appropriate health care practitioner (e.g. an emergency room physician, family doctor, and/or neurologist) that outlines the functional impacts of your disability and your accommodation needs
- additional documentation may be requested to verify the need for continued services after the estimated duration of the condition
Doctors at the Health & Wellness Centre provide disability documentation services as appropriate.
