Our Commitment

Accessibility Services at St. Clair College is committed to providing equal access to educational resources and an optimal learning environment for students with disabilities. We are dedicated to provide support and services to all students with disabilities (physical, medical, learning and/ or psychological) who provide appropriate documentation. Appropriate documentation means:

Learning Disability: A psychological assessment (within the last 5 years) displaying average intellectual functioning with a specific processing deficit combined with significantly delayed academic achievement. The psychologist must include a statement of diagnosis in the report.

ADHD: A statement of diagnosis of the disorder by a qualified professional accredited by the College of Physicians and Surgeons or a psychological assessment from a registered psychologist or psychological associate who is registered by the College of Psychologists.

Physical: A report or diagnosis from a medical professional who is registered with the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Physical disabilities include: Deaf/Hard of Hearing, Blind/Low Vision, Medical Conditions and Physical Injuries.

Psychological: A statement of diagnosis of the disorder by a qualified professional accredited by the College of Physicians and Surgeons or a psychological assessment from a registered psychologist or psychological associate who is registered by the College of Psychologists.

What is an Accommodation Plan?

An Accommodation Plan is produced by a Counsellor, in conjunction with the student that outlines reasonable and appropriate learning accommodations and supports for a student with a disability. Accommodations are chosen to assist in overcoming learning barriers that may exist as a result of a particular disability. These do not include modifications to the student's program.
