Enhancing Accessibility in Post-Secondary Education Institutions


PSE institutions have found that a large problem for students with disabilities is that many are unaware of the different services available to them. The following are recommendations on how to address this issue.

  • Send out information on disability services to all students who are accepted to the institution not just students who register with disability services. For example, include a small bookmark with links to a transition guide and/or disability website in all acceptance packages.
  • Be proactive. It is much easier to inform students ahead of time, then to try and accommodate students who didn’t realize until after they’ve begun classes that the services would be useful for them.
