Orientation for Success

Orientation for Success: A Resource Guide for College Representatives of the College Committee on Disability Issues summarizes and documents the background and progression of services to students with disabilities in the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology. Each section focuses on either background or resource information that is essential to your role as a representative, as well as within your college community.

The College Committee on Disability Issues has been in existence since 1987 and has aided colleges with improvements for access. Consequently, as a member of this very active College Committee, you will participate in the development and communication of appropriate recommendations regarding college services to students with disabilities.

We share a common goal to assist students and to recommend the best practices for access and accommodation. Each member of CCDI has significant knowledge and we look forward to future contributions.

This publication is available in entirety as webpages on this website, or can also be downloaded in the following formats:

Chaque section présente des ressources et des renseignements de base qui vous seront précieux en tant que représentante ou représentant et au sein de votre communauté collégiale.

Le Comité collégial en besoins particuliers, constitué en 1987, aide les collèges à devenir plus accessibles. En tant que membre de cet organe très actif, vous participerez à l’élaboration et à la communication de recommandations appropriées concernant les services que les collèges fournissent aux étudiantes et étudiants handicapés.

Nous partageons l’objectif d’aider les étudiantes et étudiants et de recommander des pratiques exemplaires en matière d’accès et d’adaptation. Chaque membre du CCBP met à contribution un précieux savoir-faire, et nous sommes ravis de pouvoir compter sur votre participation.

Interpreter's Provincial Guidelines:

The College Committee on Disability Issues (CCDI) recognizes the responsibility inherent in providing support services to students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

In September 1998, CCDI struck a committee of service providers who worked largely with students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. The committee was mandated by CCDI to develop a policy that would begin to identify and implement provincial standards for service delivery to these students.

This manual focuses on interpreter, intervener, real time captioning and computerized notetaking services provided by staff and contract personnel at Ontario colleges. CCDI service providers are encouraged to use this manual as a guideline for establishing and supervising services in their institutions.

The Delta Screener: Adult LD Screening Tool:

This document was developed by the Learning Disability Special Interest Group of the College Committee on Disability Issues (CCDI) as a screening tool for adults at risk for learning disabilities.

It was developed for use by a variety of post-secondary practitioners, including counsellors, disability advisors, learning disability specialists, as well as professionals working with adults experiencing learning problems.

It is designed to be used as part of a guided interview collecting information about a client's educational history, early development, medical history, family history, employment and general life skills.

Items in the screening questionnaire are based on the expertise of many professionals working in the post-secondary system. Some information was adapted from screening questionnaires developed by: Destination Literacy, Learning Disability Association of Canada; Carol Herriot at the University of Guelph; and the University of Minnesota.

Special thanks to staff at Cambrian and Connestoga College who put many hours into the development of this questionnaire.

Facts about the Delta Screener

It is NOT a formal diagnostic test

It summarizes learning strengths and challenges

It is based on a self-report by the client

There is no cost to the client to complete the Screener

It requires approximately one to two hours to complete

Information provided can be used by the counsellor/professional to assist the client in making decisions regarding future employment or training

Results could possibly indicate the need for more thorough, formal testing
