New Students who wish to register with the College’s Adapted Services
Students living with a documented disability are entitled by Law to appropriate accommodations in the evaluation of their learning. Such disabilities may involve visual, auditory, motor, cognitive, emotional, social or organic/physical impairments, which could impede their learning and success at the postsecondary level. Accommodations may include, but are not limited to: alternative but equivalent forms of an evaluation task, extended time for completion, the use of a quiet room, the use of special software or equipment, or the specialized assistance of another person. In order to register with adapted services, students will need to meet with Marie Pupo, the Adapted Services Counsellor, in order to provide her with supporting documentation signed by a medical or qualified professional.
The student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) will be elaborated on the basis of the information listed above and reviewed by teachers to fit the student’s particular course and program objectives. Students who wish to have their IEP ready for the first week of class will need to submit this information at least one month prior to the first day of classes. Students who do not conform to this deadline may receive their IEP at a later date in the semester.
For more information about these services or the procedures to follow in order to have an IEP, please contact Marie Pupo at 450-672-7360 extension 411.
