While every student’s strengths and needs are unique, there are some common aspects to how different disorders present at post-secondary school.  Learn more about common concerns and struggles, documentation requirements, available support services, and more, as they relate to different disabilities.

This is a new section of the Transition Resource Guide. Currently, you can find information about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Mental Health Disorders. Information and resources specific to the other disabilities listed below will be added to the site in the near future, along with the French versions. We appreciate your patience. 

Other disability sections to come: 

  • Chronic Medical Conditions
  • Head Injury (Acquired Brain Injury)
  • Hearing Impairments
  • Mobility Impairments
  • Visual Impairments
Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect the regulation of attention, activity levels, and/or impulses.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a life-long neurological disorder that affects the way a person communicates and relates to the people and world around them. ASD can affect behaviour, social interactions, and communication.

Learning Disabilities

A Learning Disability (LD) affects the acquisition, organization, retention, understanding, or use of verbal or non-verbal information, which in turn affects performance in reading, writing, and/or math.
