If you are a student with a disability, we want to ensure that we arrange any necessary accommodations for your disability in the practicum/field placement setting. Please note that practicum/field placement accommodations may differ from classroom accommodations due to the particular demands of the learning environment. We urge you to discuss your accommodation needs early in the term with the practicum/field placement coordinator and a disability counsellor from Counselling & Disability Services.
Our past experience strongly suggests that there is an increased likelihood of success in practicum settings when students with disabilities disclose their need for accommodation at the earliest possible stage. Furthermore, we believe that the optimal process for determining appropriate accommodation involves collaboration among the student, CDS disability counsellor and the practicum coordinator.
