Students that contact and connect with AccessAbility Services earlier generally adjust and transition better from high school to university. Accommodations and supports can be put in place so that when classes begin they are ready to go and challenges have been addressed.
Parents can help by:
- Encouraging the student to apply to AccessAbility Services once an offer of admission has been accepted
- Ensuring that the student has the appropriate verification of disability.
- Helping the student to develop self-advocacy skills
- Encouraging the student to contact an academic advisor to discuss the academic program.
