Assistive or Adaptive technology enables students with disabilities to compensate for and minimize educational barriers imposed by their specific disability. It also promotes independence among students with disabilities, which is one of the three fundamental tenets of PMC’s philosophy. As such, we try to promote the use of adaptive technology by students with disabilities as much as possible. We try to achieve this goal by:

  • Making assistive equipment available on loan to students who are registered with the PMC
  • Having two locations from which students with disabilities have access to a wide range of adaptive technology
  • Making Bursary money available to OSAP-eligible students to purchase their own adaptive technology equipment
  • Providing technology or technical solutions as needed to suit a specific disability need
