APPLICATION FOR ADAPTED SERVICES

First of all, you must have in hand a medical note issued by a Québec professional recognised in Bill 21 (doctor, psychologist, speech therapist, neuropsychologist, optometrist, audiologist, etc.) stating your diagnosis. If you have a diagnosis but you do not have a written report, have this form completed by the professional who made your diagnosis.

It is important to point out that the report must confirm the diagnosis. A hypothetical diagnosis will not be accepted.

Then, to schedule an appointment, complete this form and send it to the person in charge at your campus. You will find this individual’s contact information below. During the meeting, your needs will be assessed to determine what accommodations, if any, will be provided to address your needs.
