Learning Disability Services (LDS)

The primary aim of the Learning Disability Services (LDS) is to provide confidential support for students identified with learning disabilities (LDs), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) in order to facilitate their academic, personal, and career goals. LDS arranges individualized academic accommodations and supports for students based on their documentation. This can include access to a variety of services both through LDS and the broader campus. LDS encourages students to register with them as soon as they have accepted their offer to York.

Programs specific to first-year students include:

  • Project ADVANCE is a two week transition program available to any high school student transitioning to post-secondary and going to any college/university. It is a free program.
  • A transition year, Language and Learning Seminar Course AP/LLS 1000 6.00, is intended primarily to assist students with learning disabilities in their transition to university studies at York. Request permission to enroll by submitting the LLS Enrollment Form
  • A new program, Strengthening transitions for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), combines workshops, one-on-one sessions and resources for students as they plan and begin their postsecondary journey.
