Your First Accommodation Appointment

Informed Consent and Confidentiality form explains briefly how your accessibility counsellor will protect your confidentiality and how our department operates. This document also includes a consent form and intake form for you to fill in and send to before your first appointment with your accessibility counsellor.

Preparing for Your Accommodation Appointment booklet gives you more detailed information about confidentiality and how the Accessible Education Services department works. There is also a section with information about accommodations and some important questions to think about with respect to your accommodation needs and goals for success.

The User’s Guide to Accommodations & Accessible Education Services

If you would like more information about any of the accommodations you and your accessibility counsellor have agreed on, we have created this User’s Guide to AES (2021). Just go to the table of contents, find the accommodation you are interested in (they are in alphabetical order) and click on it. You will be taken directly to that page in the User’s Guide where you can learn about what the accommodation is, how it helps, what your teachers’ role is and what your role is.
