Workshop for Service Providers

As a part of our mandate, Disability Services engages in community outreach with respect to transition issues faced by students with disabilities entering post-secondary.  To help fulfill this mandate,  our Learning Disability Services (LDS) offers a one-day workshop for service providers.

Topics of discussion at this workshop will include:

  • Advocacy skills required at the post-secondary level, including, how to deal with disclosure to staff, faculty, and peers
  • Transition programs and supports at all post-secondary institutions
  • Modified Admissions
  • Supports for students with mental health disabilities
  • Project ADVANCE, a transition program for York students with disabilities
  • Documentation Requirements
  • Access to "high stakes" accommodations at the post-secondary level
  • Academic readiness skills required for post-secondary level work and how students can be supported when there is a gap between their course demands and their skills
  • The role of high school service providers in preparing their students for the transition to post-secondary studies during their final year of high school and development of a transition portfolio
