Students with disabilities add to the diversity of the university community. As a TA at York you may encounter students with physical, learning, medical or mental health disabilities; often these students have academic accommodations.  After a brief review of the university’s policies concerning academic accommodations, we will discuss strategies for maintaining a “disability-friendly” classroom and other things you will need to know to teach students with disabilities.

This workshop will count towards the Teaching Commons ‘Record of Completion’ certificate
