Details for students with disabilities

Students with permanent disabilities, who require the accommodation of a reduced course load due to the impact of a documented disability, may be eligible to participate in the Program. For the purposes of this program, the definition of permanent disability is:

  • A functional limitation caused by a physical or mental impairment that restricts the ability of a person to perform the daily activities necessary to participate in studies while enrolled in what the institution considers to be a full course load for the period of study in question, which impairment is expected to remain with the person for the expected duration of the person’s postsecondary studies.

A student is required to identify him or herself to the appropriate person at Cambrian’s disabilities services office and present documentation confirming the disability and the need for a reduced course load as a learning accommodation. Such documentation must satisfy the college that it meets the following criteria:

  • Medical documentation from an appropriate health care professional (e.g. a legally qualified psychiatrist/medical practitioner that indicates a permanent disability); or
  • A learning disability assessment from a qualified assessor supporting the student’s permanent learning disability (e.g. a registered psychologist, or psychological associate).
  • Attention Deficit Disorder and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may be diagnosed by a registered psychologist with ADD/ADHD training; a neuro-psychologist; a psychological associate; and/or a relevantly trained medical doctor.

The ADHD assessment should outline the diagnosis and the impact of the hyperactivity or the lack of attention on learning.

A student must identify him or herself to the Cambrian disabilities services office no later than January 16, 2020, to be eligible to participate in the Applicant Prize Program based on a modified course load.
