If you anticipate, or are experiencing, barriers to full participation related to a disability or medical condition, please contact Access and Disability Resources (ADR).
1. Make an appointment with ADR
Contact ADR reception at 780-497-5886 or email email@example.com to make an appointment with an ADR Learning Specialist.
COVID-19 Update: Appointments are being conducted virtually by phone or video conference and in-person when necessary.
2. Provide documentation of disability to ADR
We request that you provide us with documentation of your disability that has been prepared by a licensed professional and that describes current functioning. If you have a stable condition, it may be all right if the documentation is not recent. We ask that the documentation provides enough information to help us anticipate potential barriers that you may face as a student. It’s generally helpful if it includes:
- a specific diagnosis
- a description of how the typical university experience may create barriers for you
- recommendations for resources, accommodations, and services that will remove potential barriers to full participation.
For medical conditions, you can ask your treating physician to fill in the Documentation of Disability form (pdf).
If you’re not sure what documentation to provide, please ask us and we’ll advise you on how to obtain the required documentation.
3. Identify Early
We encourage you to register with us in advance—preferably 2 to 4 months before the start of term. This gives us enough time to determine which resources will be helpful and how to put them in place. The sooner you register, the sooner we can arrange everything before classes begin.
