Accommodations made during and after application process for students with Disabilities
An accessible learning environment and the support in gaining accommodations is incredibly important for all students to achieve success in Graduate and Professional Studies as well. Each school will have varying accommodations that can be found by all students.
Chiara Filicetti shared with us the accommodations across the Campuses of Humber College. All of the staff members receive Accessibility for Ontarian's Disability Act (AODA) compliance trainings. There are numerous resources available to students of varying abilities including Note Takers in class, American Sign Language interpreters, T9 Ciphers, extra time in test taking, and universally accessible websites and documents.
All of the accommodations are provided by Humber Staff meaning they are not outsourced from the community and the Accessibility Centre staff inform each of the student’s professors of the accommodations on the behalf of the student, so they are aware before the student begins the course.
