About Accessible Learning

What does AL do?

Accessible Learning (AL) is responsible for providing academic accommodation planning for students with disabilities to ensure barrier-free access to education.

Accommodation planning and services are tailored to correspond with the disability-related needs of each student and are determined based on the documentation provided and program specific requirements.

We aim to create a college culture that is sensitive and responsive to the needs of students. We work collaboratively with students to identify their strengths and empower them to realize their academic and personal potential. 

AL Staff is responsible for:

  • Determining appropriate accommodations
  • Supporting the student to use services appropriately
  • Serving as a resource to students and faculty
  • Facilitating and supporting collegial discussions between the student and faculty regarding appropriate accommodations

If you are a student with a disability and require academic accommodation, register with AL at your home campus.

What are Academic Accommodations?

Accommodations in the educational setting refers to a planned variation to the method of curriculum delivery or assessment of the core content of a course or program to provide a student equal opportunity to meet the essential academic requirements. Academic accommodation for students with disabilities is a shared responsibility between all applicable parties.

To learn more about accessibility at Sheridan, you can read about how we strive to promote equity and inclusivity for people with disabilities, access information on Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), and other accessibility resources. 

If you would like more information about services and supports that AL offers, contact us at your home campus.
