Services for Students With a Disability
At Brock University we want to accept and accommodate all students who learn at different levels. If you’re suffering from a mental health issue and need accommodation it’s important to seek support from the office of Services For Students with a Disability (SSWD) well in advance of your arrival to Brock. SSWD provides services and supports to students with a documented disability. They’re here to support students through the educational process, encourage independence and help students succeed. SSWD works within the Brock community to develop an equitable and accessible environment so students with disabilities are fully included in the university experience.
There are a wide variety of services offered:
- Note takers
- Assistive technologies
- Exam accommodations
- Forms for mental health related disabilities
Transitioning to University as a Student With a Disability
The transition process can be tough for individuals who don’t have a disability. SSWD offers a wide variety of transition programs to assist students with a smooth transition. Brock has a transition co-ordinator, Mary Ann Tierney (email@example.com) who offers support specifically for the transition into the post-secondary school environment.
Mindful Transitions Program
Mindful Transitions is a transition program offered by SSWD designed specifically for students with a diagnosed and documented disability.
