Chronic health, mental health, sensory disabilities & physical disabilities

If you are experiencing difficulties affecting your learning and you identify with any of the following disability categories, or believe you may have a disability, we encourage you to register with Accessibility Services for academic accommodations. Chronic health conditions refer to conditions that last for more than three months e.g. bowel diseases, epilepsy, migraines.
Mental health conditions can be either permanent or temporary e.g. anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, eating disorders. Sensory disabilities relate to vision and hearing e.g. low vision/legally blind and D/deaf/deafened or hard of hearing. Physical disabilities can be either permanent or temporary e.g. mobility/functional challenges, broken limb.
