Accommodations

Your Accessibility Specialist will work with you and your instructors to create and follow an accommodation plan. The picture below shows the steps in the planning process.

1) Meet with an Accessibility Specialist: Let us know where you anticipate barriers so we can discuss accommodations together, 2) Share Accommodation Memos: Your Accessibility Specialist will email your instructor with details of your accommodations, 3) Collaborate with instructors: Meet with your instructors in a confidential setting to talk about your accommodations, 4) Keep us updated: Keep in touch with your Accessibility Specialist to let us know how things are going, 5) Plan Ahead: Contact your Accessibility Specialist at the start of each semester to review your accommodations, so that memos can be sent to your instructors

 

Common accommodations include:

Visit the Accessibility Services Portal for Students to:

  • View your accommodation memos
  • Request your accommodation memos be sent to instructors
  • Request changes or additions to your accommodation memos
  • Schedule tests and exams you will be writing with Accessibility Services

You can use your Douglas College student number and CNA (College Network Authentication) password to log on to the portal.
