Services for Students with Disabilities

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) plays a central role in Western’s efforts to ensure that its academic programs are accessible. SSD arranges academic accommodation for classes, exams, practicum placements, and other course or program activities. SSD also provides: digital and Braille textbooks; accessible campus transportation; learning strategy instruction for students with learning disabilities; access to the Learning Opportunities Lab and Access Lab, both of which are equipped with assistive technology and located at Weldon Library; referrals for assessments and other services; and bursaries for students who meet OSAP’s eligibility criteria.  Students and prospective students may meet with an SSD counsellor to obtain information about specific accommodations and services that may be available to them.
