Transitions Programs for Students with Disabilities
We understand that making the transition to college life can be a big challenge. That’s why we have organized events to help make that transition a little easier. Our transition team visits area high schools and agencies and provides presentations about our services. Watch this Transitions Programs video for more information.

Discovering Your Potential
Every spring, we offer Discovering Your Potential, a chance for Grade 11 students with learning support needs to visit our main campus and find out more about Fanshawe and Accessibility Services. Students get to try out new technology, learn about our services, win prizes, and meet successful college students. It’s a fun day for everyone!
Fanshawe hosts an Open House in both the spring and the fall. You can tour the college, speak to professors and students in many different programs, attend an accessibility services information session, tour the residence and learn about college services. It’s a great way to see what the college has to offer.
Fast Forward to Fanshawe
This program is offered in late summer to new Fanshawe students registered with Accessibility Services. Students with disabilities who will be starting their programs in September can access our virtual Fast Forward to Fanshawe videos in early September. These videos are designed to help you get ready for your first semester as an adult college student. We will have interactive Q&A sessions for both general workshops as well as a specialized session for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. To register for a session, please contact Counselling and Accessibility Services or call 519-452-4282.
For students and their families who are making post-secondary program decisions and have questions about accessibility at Fanshawe. We offer individual pre-admission interviews with an Accessibility Services counsellor for those students who need a more personalized discussion.
Due to COVID 19, most services are currently being offered virtually!
