As part of NEADS’ Landscape of Accessibility and Accommodation for Post-Secondary Students with Disabilities in Canada project, career service professionals at Canadian post-secondary institutions were surveyed to better understand current practices for students with disabilities. Findings from our career educators survey - with funding support from CERIC - will be shared. Presenters will also provide insight from an extensive analysis of the Canadian Survey on Disability (StatsCan, 2012). The presentation will conclude with a discussion of innovative practices in career transition programming.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understanding unique career challenges and opportunities for students & grads with disabilities
  • Gaining key insight from significant data in this area
  • Collaborating with Canada's only national organization that represents college and university students with disabilities

Dans le cadre de son projet Accessibilité, conception universelle et de services d’orientation professionnelle, NEADS a posé des questions à des spécialistes de l’orientation professionnelle dans des établissements postsecondaires canadiens afin de mieux comprendre le quotidien des étudiants handicapés. Les résultats du sondage transmis aux spécialistes de l’orientation professionnelle, avec l’appui financier de CERIC, seront bientôt diffusés. Les présentateurs proposeront également une analyse approfondie des résultats de l’Enquête canadienne sur l’incapacité (Statistique Canada, 2012). La présentation prendra fin sur une discussion des nouvelles pratique en matière de programmes de réorientation professionnelle.

Objectifs d’apprentissage :
  • Comprendre les défis et les occasions professionnels propres aux étudiants et diplômés handicapés
  • Obtenir de précieux renseignements tirés de données importantes dans le domaine
  • Collaborer avec la seule organisation nationale canadienne qui représente les étudiants handicapés du niveau postsecondaire
