Who we are & What we do
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is a team of interdisciplinary professionals who provide support to students with disabilities through one-on-one advising, referrals to campus supports, and adaptive technology. SAS supports include:
• Developing individualized accommodation plans for registered students;
• Working with students to develop approaches and strategies that use students' strengths to help them engage with their coursework;
• Offering support through an Adaptive Technologist, using a hands-on approach which allows students to learn how their technology works and how it can be used in their studies;
• Directing and connecting students to appropriate campus resources.
Reasonable and Appropriate Accommodation
Trent University commits to providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Recommendations from internal and external professionals do not guarantee specific accommodations. Following the review of diagnostic documentation to consider its appropriateness for supporting requested accommodations, Accessibility Advisors work in partnership with students to develop an accommodation plan that best meets the individual’s needs within the post-secondary academic environment.
