The program guidelines indicate that students are also expected to seek alternate types of support, such as Canada Student Loans or Workerís Compensation. EAPD is used to supplement these other programs. For example, EAPD support is to be used for assistive devices, human services such as a sign language interpreter, reader or note taker. EAPD may also be used in situations where support is needed to cover additional expenses with co-operative work/study programs. There was no waiting list for EAPD support in Prince Edward Island at the time of this research.
