Technology

Students use assistive technology to reduce the impact of their disability. Assistive technology includes but is not limited to:

  • Reading software
  • Dictation software
  • Organization/planning software
  • Recording devices
  • FM systems

Assistive software is available in most computer labs, computer commons areas, and dedicated labs for students registered with the Access and Support Centre (ASC).

Students who have assistive technology as part of their individualized Access Plan will be referred to an assistive technologist in the ASC for training and software assistance as needed.

STEPS FOR OBTAINING ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY AND TRAINING:

  1. Meet with your ASC case manager or accessibility coach to discuss how technology may be appropriate as an accommodation.
  2. If applicable, your ASC case manager or accessibility coach will then refer you to meet with an ASC assistive technologist.
