Information about Accessibility Services for iSchool Students
Accessibility Services remains open and we remain committed to helping students with disabilities registered with our Services complete their terms with as little disruption as possible.
We invite students, faculty and staff to review important updates and FAQs on our website: https://www.studentlife.utoronto.ca/as/covid-19-updates.
Updates for students:
- Learning Strategist appointments are available to support students with academic skill-building and reinforcement related to challenges with motivation, time management, procrastination, perfectionism, and the transition to online learning among other issues.
- Accessibility Services has an Adaptive Technologist who can provide information on and assessments for adaptive technologies. We ask that students speak to their Accessibility Advisor to discuss whether a meeting with the Adaptive Technologist may be helpful.
