Welcome to Accessible Education Services at Fleming College!

Our services are provided free of charge, in a confidential and voluntary manner. If any of the following descriptions apply to you, you may be eligible for academic accommodations that can help create a level playing field for you during your college experience.

Accessible Education Services is here for:

  • Students who had an IEP in school
  • Students who have a diagnosed, physical, mental health (such as depression or anxiety), learning disability, or other disability (such as ADD or ADHD or Autism)
  • Students who have not been diagnosed with a disability, but think they might have an undiagnosed condition

Registering with Accessible Education Services is the crucial first step to accessing the academic accommodations and services you need. To help you get started, we have provided a breakdown of useful resources.

Registering with Accessible Education Services is your first step to accessing academic accommodations and services. The registration process involves 2 steps:

Step 1: Complete the AES Intake form and send your disability documentation to Counselling & Accessible Education Services. If you aren’t sure what documentation we need, check out Disability Documentation.

Step 2: Meet with your accessibility counsellor. Before your appointment, your accessibility counsellor will review your documentation and the intake forms you received from our receptionist. It would be helpful if you reviewed your documentation beforehand as well.

We are dedicated to providing support for all incoming students with disabilities, ensuring a seamless transition from high school to college. Join our First at Fleming comprehensive transition program to gain invaluable insights from fellow students and faculty, fostering a deeper understanding of the journey ahead. By participating in this program, you will not only become acquainted with the Accessible Education Services team but also have the opportunity to explore the extensive range of campus supports available, ensuring your success throughout your college experience. Visit our event page, here for more details.

Academic accommodations can be an important part of your success at college. Academic accommodations are individualized to your specific needs and the program requirements. Some of the most commonly used academic accommodations are listed on our department page. If there is an accommodation you would like to request that is not included here, please speak with your counsellor. To be eligible to request academic accommodations, you must register with Accessible Education Services.

Our services are specifically designed to support students with disabilities, focusing on skill development, strategies, and resources to enhance your college learning. Services are different from accommodations because services don’t make adjustments to your courses like accommodations do. Services help you develop the skills, strategies, tools and resources to make the most of your college learning.

Just like academic accommodations, you and your counsellor will discuss the services available and select the ones that will help you to build the skills, strategies and resources that enhance your learning.

As a student with a disability at Fleming College, we recognize and value your active role in your learning and the accommodations you receive. You are an essential partner alongside your accessibility counsellor and the staff in Accessible Education Services. Here are a few examples of how you actively participate in the accommodation process:

  • Communicating your needs and providing relevant documentation.
  • Collaborating with your accessibility counsellor to determine appropriate accommodations.
  • Advocating for yourself by requesting accommodations in a timely manner.
  • Regularly reviewing and discussing your accommodations to ensure their effectiveness.
  • Engaging in open and constructive communication with faculty regarding your accommodations.
  • Providing feedback on the effectiveness of accommodations and suggesting improvements.
