The Centre for Students with Disabilities (CSD) uses the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as its guiding principles.
In order to receive services through the CSD, students must present documentation of their disability to the Coordinator. For students with learning disabilities, we ask for a copy of your most recent psychological assessment, plus the Individual Education Plan (IEP) and/or IPRC. Often, these documents can be obtained from your high school resource department or school board. For students with physical, medical or other disabilities, we ask for a doctor's letter or report that confirms the nature of the disability. The CSD has a medical form that can be provided, if necessary.
Students should identify themselves to the CSD. Please contact Fran to make an appointment to discuss your needs. Fran also supports faculty who want to help their students with alternative learning strategies. Fran's office is located in room 213 and she may be reached at 735-4700 extension 2729.
Fran Murphy is also responsible for the coordination of the Peer Tutoring Service. Students can receive tutoring for the nominal fee of $5 per hour in the subject area required.
However if, due to financial restraints, he/she cannot afford the fee, financial aid is available free to a maximum of three hours per week.
If you are interested in becoming a tutor please see Fran to discuss the position.
Peer tutors are paid $11 per hour and gain experience that will later help in their chosen field. To receive tutoring or to become a tutor please contact Fran.
