How Will They Know What I Need?: Disability Services in Post Secondary

Written by on September 11th, 2014 – 5 Comments

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.

    I wonder, will information be given for those like myself that cannot attend? I have MS.. However, I never finished school because of my disease!

    This orientation session as been postponed due to low attendance. Stay tuned; there are plans to reschedule it in the new year as either as an in-person presentation or as a live webinar, which would include interested participants outside the GTA.

    Please notify me when updated information is available for this presentation! Out here in Alberta we find that we are limited to these types of resources.

    Thanks for the post Lioncoeur. I highly recommend anyone who is in post-secondary or plans to attend a post-secondary institution to know what resources are available as it can really help with your experience.
