Student Accessibility Services

In accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s (OHRC)  Policy on accessible education for students with disabilities and York University Senate policy on Academic Accommodation, we provide individualized academic accommodation planning to students with temporary and permanent disabilities. 
This could be: 

•A Learning Disability/Disorder

•A chronic health or mental health condition

•A physical disability or impairment

•An Acquired Brain Injury, post-concussive syndrome

•A sensory disability or impairment such as blindness or deafness

•A neurodiversity such as ADD, ADHD or autism

We use the term “disability” when we talk about registration with our office to be consistent with the language in the OHRC and York Senate policies. We offer expertise in disability related supports and academic accommodations.
