Adaptive Technology Services

Academic AccommodationsCounselling & Coaching Learning Strategies

Adaptive or Assistive Technology (AT) is a generic term that includes any piece of equipment or software that is used to increase efficiency, maintain function, or improve the capability of individuals with disabilities. AT is used to achieve greater independence while compensating for any functional deficits.

The Adaptive Technologists work closely with the Counsellors/Accessibility Advisors in supporting students with disabilities. After a referral, students may see an Adaptive Technologist for:

- An AT assessment and/or review of existing AT
- Assistance with the ordering / purchasing process
- On-going training and troubleshooting needs

Adaptive Technology Training Modules 

Our Kingston, Brockville, and Cornwall campuses have full-time staff that support student with disabilities and faculty in a collaborative and encouraging manner. Students with temporary or permanent disabilities or functional limitations can access individually designed supports, personal counseling and accommodations to meet their academic and placement needs. SLC's goal is to address the attitudinal, informational, communication, technological,organizational, and physical barriers that can hinder the success of students with disabilities as they strive to achieve their educational, personal and career goals.

SLC embraces the legal and ethical rights to equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination for individuals with disabilities as noted under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982), the Ontario Human Rights Code (1990) and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), particularly as it applies to our students.
