Theme: Disabilities
Institution: University of Lethbridge

Description: The Accommodated Learning Centre at the University of Lethbridge: helping our students shine by evening the playing field. Accommodations are about providing equity, not equality. We will discuss our intake process for student registering for our office, as well as documentation required for both academic accommodations and funded supports. Learn about the funded supports we can put in place, as well as our exam process. What documentation is needed to receive accommodations is a ‘hot topic’ right now, due to the changes in exam accommodations in the Alberta High School setting. Beyond accommodations our office provides screenings for suspected learning disabilities, and referrals to external and internal services to better assist our students. We provide a range of services that assist students with disabilities, mental health conditions, and those just looking for some direction.
