Accessibility Services at U of T

Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 1:00 PM until 2:00 PMEastern Daylight Time


In this presentation we'll be joined by staff from Accessibility Services, who will talk about their mission to provide students with a network of resources to succeed at U of T, both inside and outside the classroom. Accessibility Services strives to create a safe and comfortable community for students where they can navigate their disability and related barriers, facilitate peer support and interactions, and provide various academic and social opportunities.

Their services include (but are not limited to):

  • Test and exam accommodations
  • Support in determining and negotiating effective accommodations
  • Expertise in learning strategies and adaptive technology
  • Class notes through our volunteer note taking program
  • Tutor list
  • Peer mentoring and drop-in; connect with senior students to help learn the ropes and have fun with other students
  • SASA: connect with students on the autism spectrum for fun and problem solving support
  • Access to funding for disability-related supports and services for qualified students
