Applying for an Accommodation for your Disability

S4S (Strategies for Staying) Committee has written a pamphlet on Woodsworth’s accommodation procedures.  It gives an overview of what you have to do to request an accommodation for your disability.

The pamphlet will be available in print in the 2nd floor photocopy room, in a plastic hanging sleeve near the door to the inner office.

It is also available online – click on Accessibility on the home page menu.

And for your convenience, here it is as well!
