Student Accessibility Services can arrange for learning and/or testing accommodations based on your needs. In addition, our staff will assist faculty in meeting your in-class learning and accessibility needs.
If you have concerns about the demands of university life, especially academic demands, you can meet with an Accessibility Consultant and together you can work on strategies to help solve learning challenges and/or manage your work load. In addition, our annual Summer Transition Program (STP) is a program specifically designed to ease the transition of new students with disabilities to the services and resources available at Nipissing University and the North Bay community.
In order to better meet the needs of students with disabilities at Nipissing University, this early identification and information form is made available for you to facilitate early communication with the Student Accessibility Services Office.
This information is collected according to the following principles:
Please complete the Self Identification Form and forward it to Diane Sheldon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax to 705-495-2850.
The purpose of requesting this information is to assist the Student Accessibility Services Office to make early accommodations or arrange special services if requested by a student with a disability.
Students requesting academic accommodation are required to
provide Student Accessibility Services with current documentation from a
regulated health care professional who is licensed to diagnose your disability
or health condition. Specific documentation requirements will depend on the
nature of a student’s disability. The following outlines specific documentation
A psycho-educational assessment completed by registered psychologist is required. The student must be an adult (at least 16 years of age) at the time of the assessment; the assessment must contain a clear and conclusive diagnostic statement of a learning disability; and the assessment can be no more than five (5) years old.
A report completed by a qualified healthcare professional with experience in the diagnosis of ADHD as well as in the treatment of adolescents and adults with ADHD is required.
Completion of the SAS Medical Documentation form is strongly
encouraged. This form can be found online: www.nipissingu.ca/sas
Completion of the SAS Medical Documentation form is required. This form can be
found online: www.nipissingu.ca/sas
A psycho-educational assessment* or formal letter from a family physician, psychologist, or psychiatrist* or completion of the SAS Medical Documentation form is required.
*If you have a comprehensive assessment report completed by a regulated health
care professional who is licensed to diagnose your disability or health condition that
confirms your disability and details the functional limitations of your disability, it can
be used in place of the SAS Medical Documentation form.
** An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and/or Identification, Placement and Review Committee Report (IPRC) are educational documents, and although they may be helpful to us as they provide insight into the Special Education support you may have had in elementary and secondary school, the IEP and the IPRC Report are not diagnostic healthcare documents and, therefore, they cannot be accepted as valid documentation of a disability.
If you do have an IEP but no formal documentation of your disability, please attach/forward your IEP and we will contact you for further information.
