Learning Disability Services (LDS) in collaboration with the other units within Disability Services, offers a summer transition program for York students with disabilities. This program is designed to prepare students with documented disabilities (e.g., learning disabilities, mental health disabilities, physical, sensory and medical disabilities, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder) for success in their post-secondary studies. It is offered as a two-week intensive program during the summer months. While we welcome students at any point in their studies at York, provided they are newly registered with Disability Services, it should be noted that the primary focus of this program is on students who are transitioning from high school to university.
Visit the Project ADVANCE page on the Disability Services website for more information, including dates and how to apply. Parents or other support persons who have a child taking part in Project ADVANCE can attend a one-day "parent orientation" designed to address parental concerns relating to the transition to post-secondary studies for students with disabilities (this orientation takes place on the first day of the program).
As part of the Project ADVANCE initiative, LDS offers a number of transition programs to parents and service providers. Visit our Transition Programs page to learn more.
