Accessibility Services provides support for students with disabilities within the SAIT community. It also offers accommodations and services for SAIT students with chronic health conditions and mobility, sensory (e.g. vision and hearing), learning, attentional, neurological, psychological, and temporary disabilities (e.g. broken wrist).
Services provided to students with disabilities and health conditions include assistance with funding applications for services and adaptive equipment, facilitation of classroom and examination accommodations, provision of needed equipment loans, consultation and referrals.
For more information about Accessibility Services, please check the Student Guide to Accessibility Services.
Since arranging for accommodations and services and attaining funds for services takes time, please check our documentation guidelines, and contact us at least six months before the first day of the semester or training period of your planned start at SAIT.
