Service Provider Workshop

Group of people listening to someone speak

Disability Service at York University offers a one-day workshop to service providers and clinicians with a focus on transition issues for students with disabilities.  This workshop will take place from 8:30 - 4:00 pm on Thursday, February 22, 2018.

NEW!  Relevant for high school professionals as well as diagnosing clinicians,  the afternoon session from 1:00pm - 4:00 pm will focus on how we determine accommodations (degree, amount) and supports for students based on the documentation we receive.  We will discuss how some DSM V diagnoses impact students and their ability to access accommodations, grants, and other funding and supports.

Agenda Items:

  • Role of high school service providers in preparing transition plans
  • Advocacy skills required - disclosure to staff, faculty, and peers
  • Transition programs and supports (i.e., Project ADVANCE, ASD Pilot)
  • Admissions procedures and policies for students with disabilities (presented by a representative from Admissions)
  • Documentation Requirements for all disabilities
  • Transition issues, accommodations, and supports for students requiring higher levels of supports
  • Academic readiness skills required for post-secondary level work and how students can be supported when there is a gap between their course demands and their skills
