New Brunswick PSE institutions develop online tool to help persons with disabilities

June 4, 2014

PSE institutions in New Brunswick have teamed with the provincial government to launch a new website, Supporting Students with Disabilities. The website follows a model set by the Université de Moncton to help improve participation and success in PSE for persons with disabilities. It includes training modules for educators, identifies different types of learning difficulties and disabilities, and outlines services provided for students by the institutions. NB Post-Secondary Education, Training, and Labour Minister Jody Carr said, “today’s launch is a great example of how we are implementing new strategies and fostering a positive shift for both students and educators. This tool is helping connect educators with the information they need to better support students with disabilities.” This project extends from NB’s commitment to improve PSE access for under-represented students.
