Being in post-secondary can be a very stressful time – so trying to figure out to manoeuver one’s MS diagnosis at the same time can make it even more difficult, especially if a flare-up hits at an inopportune time.
Luckily there are many services available to post-secondary students available at universities but at times it can be difficult to try to figure out where and how to get said services.
On September 20th, the Multiple Sclerosis Society is hosting an event titled “How will they know what I need? Accessing disability services post-secondary” at York University. Students with MS and their families are invited to participate as different services are talked about by staff.
I’ll also be speaking at it briefly about my experience in post-secondary with disability services and navigating the system.
I invite you all to this orientation and lunch. I’d love to see you all there.
