Accessibility Counsellors

Some students may have functional limitations that impact their ability to fully engage with their academic work. Identifying the appropriate academic accommodations for a student with a disability in the postsecondary environment is critical to ensure students are supported during their time at Seneca. Our counsellors work with students to identify individual accommodation needs so that students can more fully participate in their academic studies.
