For students with learning disabilities and other documented disabilities, our Student and Academic Services office has a Disability Resource Facilitator who provides service to NSCAD students. To set up an appointment, please call Bill Travis at (902) 494 8313. Services and accommodations will vary, depending on the individual needs of each student, but can include note-taking and tutoring services, the provision of texts and readings in digital format (for persons with print disabilities), the accommodation of special needs for writing exams, assistance with applications for the Canada Student Grant for Equipment and Services for Students with Disabilities, and learning disability pre-screening interviews. Also, if required, referrals are provided to local psychologists who specialize in Psycho-Educational Assessments for University students.
