Making Extra-Curricular Activities Inclusive

What is Accessibility?

“Don't just include students with 'obvious' disabilities when you are considering accessibility....there are many 'invisible' disabilities that are often overlooked.”
- Student
University, Ontario

For the purposes of this document, accessibility is defined as the opportunity for students with disabilities to participate in the same extracurricular activities as their non-disabled peers.

Accessibility includes both the removal of physical barriers to participation as well as environmental and attitudinal barriers. Inclusion goes far beyond ramps and elevators.
