Welcome to the Centre for Accessible Learning/StFX Program for Students with Disabilities. The main goals of our program are:
- To work with students to develop learning strategies that will be effective in the university environment
- To develop the working partnerships students need to be successful in university and beyond
University can be a daunting place but with preparation, commitment and support, students with disabilities can do very well here.
In the Tramble Rooms, students with documented disabilities, or those who suspect they have a disability, first meet with the program's Coordinator. Students who meet program criteria work with program staff on specific issues including, but not limited to:
- applications for grants
- registration and course selection
- assessing accommodations options,
- assessing and obtaining assistive technologies
- training in the use of assistive technologies
- locating note takers and tutors
- providing information regarding Accessible Learning here at StFX.
Campus tours and meetings can be arranged through the Admissions Advisors' Office via email@example.com or by phoning 1-877-867-StFX (extension 7839).
Tours can include:
- a meeting with disabilities program personnel
- a demonstration of adaptive technology
- a meeting with students who are registered in our Program.
Students with disabilities have been very successful on our campus. Many in our program have been leaders in their classes, in campus societies, in sports, in musical endeavors, in their residences and in student government. Many have gone on to further education and careers in teaching, law, business, social work, professional sports and fitness, or to jobs in computer technology. As of December 2010, 230 students are registered in our program. As a student with a disability at StFX, you would become a member of a group of students who have developed a very good reputation for hard work and success
