Accessible Learning Centre

The Accessible Learning Centre provides a full range of services to students with disabilities, including - accommodated exams, assistive technology and alternate-format course materials. We also provide contacts for tutoring, note-taking and support services within Laurier and the community at large.

Disabilities supported by the Centre (but not limited to) are: mobility, learning, medical (e.g., Crohn's, cancer, chronic fatigue), psychiatric/psychological (e.g., OCD, depression, bipolar), chronic pain (e.g., fibromyalgia, arthritis), acquired brain injuries, hearing and vision.

Once students have self-identified with the Centre, services and strategies are put into place to provide academic support in the classroom, in examinations and to expand day-to-day strategies.

While documentation of a disability is a requirement, any student who suspects a disability should contact the Centre.

Students are encouraged to apply for OSAP, since OSAP eligibility is necessary to access funding through the Bursary for Students with Disabilities.
