The State of Accessible and Inclusive Post-Secondary Education in Canada: Learning from the Narratives of Disabled and Neurodivergent Persons

For the past two years, the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) has visited postsecondary campuses throughout the country as part of our State of the Schools Tour. We have engaged with both undergraduate and graduate disabled and neurodivergent students, as well as community members, on topics ranging from academic accommodations, activism, and active and meaningful participation within both the classroom and on-campus life. Join us on July 30, 2024, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm ET, as our Lead Researcher provides an overview of the research we have been conducting whilst on tour, discusses preliminary findings, and proposes next action items.

ASL and LSQ interpretation, closed captioning, and EN/FR interpretation will be provided. Registration is required – please register here. For further information and/or to discuss access needs, please contact Chloée C. Godin-Jacques, NEADS’s Lead Researcher, at

This bilingual event is a feature of our Virtual Access for All webinar series, which is generously supported by Employment and Social Development Canada's Supports for Student Learning Program.
