Testimonials

I first chose college because I knew it would be more of a hands-on learning environment, which is how I learn best. I also chose College because of the smaller classroom sizes, and the ability to get to know my professors.  I later decided to attend university, because I always wanted more

“For me deciding what I wanted to do for a living was pretty easy. I was good at programming and I had a love for video games. When it came to post secondary school though, that was a little more challenging. It was a toss up between a college that was more hands-on and focused, or a university that would give me a more well-rounded education.

“As a student with a learning disability, each year I registered with my school’s disability services and I met with a Learning Disabilities Strategist to discuss my goals, academic concerns and accommodations.

"I am part of a small program where there are less than fifty students. I am the only one with academic accommodations, and due to the class size, I was worried at first how my classmates and friends would react when they noticed I wrote tests separately from them and received extended deadlines. The conversation wasn’t the disaster I thought it would be, though.

"When I first got to University I was definitely nervous about what was up ahead. The same type of fears from High school: what if I get lost/ what if I don't make any friends, etc. But the second I moved into residence I was greeted with a huge amount of excitement from everyone around me. What really surprised me was how much support everyone gave to each other.

“When I began researching potential universities, I took special interest in the Accessibility Services Office on each campus and what they had to offer for students. It was important for me to feel comfortable, welcome and supported at the school I chose, and I found that speaking to an advisor from each of the campuses before making my decision was very beneficial.

"As I was preparing for my first year of university, I decided that I was going to live off-campus. University residences were much more expensive and I thought that living off-campus would be a good way to save money. For my first three years of university I lived in a student co-operative and I'm so glad that I did.

"Going into university, I put a lot of emphasis on the academic transition. However, I found the adjustment to university life quite challenging to balance academics with physical health, mental health, and social involvement. Once I acknowledged this, I sought help from various on-campus resources and actively worked on these areas.

"Last year when my son, Jordan, was applying to post-secondary institutions, the Resource Guide for Students with Disabilities was invaluable.  Jordan was entering post-secondary with a medical disability and we were in the process of getting him assessed for other learning issues.

The Transition Resource Guide is my go to for high school students and parents asking questions about how to access accommodations in post-secondary.  It’s informative, comprehensive and very easy to navigate.
