Accessibility Services at Glendon

Accessibility Services at Glendon provide academic accommodation and support to students with temporary or permanent disabilities to facilitate student academic success. Our services are offered in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s Policy on accessible education for students with disabilities and York University Senate Policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities.

This could be:

  • a Learning Disability/Disorder;
  • a chronic health or mental health condition;
  • a physical disability or impairment;
  • an Acquired Brain Injury, post-concussive syndrome;
  • a sensory disability or impairment such as blindness or deafness;
  • a neurodiversity, ADD, ADHD or autism.

We use the term “disability” when we talk about registration with our office to be consistent with the language in the OHRC and York Senate policies. We offer expertise in disability related supports and what academic accommodations are appropriate, necessary and reasonable.

Accessibility Services at Glendon are located at the Student Success Centre, York Hall B108.
