The Easy Start Transition Program for students with disabilities aims to provide new students with resources and information to assist in transitioning to post-secondary studies at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber.
The program includes interactive opportunities to explore Humber’s services and learn about accessing academic accommodations.
Students will also have the opportunity to meet with returning students registered with Accessible Learning Services.
A second component is the additional and optional ASD Day for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. ASD Day is held at North campus and focuses specifically on the transition from high school to college for ASD students.
This event addresses unique concerns and strategies of transitioning that would most benefit ASD students. Students get first year survival tips from senior students with ASD, develop a few more strategies for academic and social success, and practice using Humber & Guelph-Humber’s online learning systems.
