Disability Supports for Students

Every college and university in Canada will have support for students with disabilities. The nature of support will vary depending on the institution. In Nova Scotia, each student can connect with the Office of Accessibility Services on campus. Below is a list of contact information for colleges and universities across Nova Scotia.

Studentgizor is a mobile App targeting but not limited to first-year university students - specifically those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The niche of Studentgizor is that upon the completion of their user profile, these delivery modes are unique to the ADHD symptom challenges and prompt update cues to the student until the deadline is acknowledged as finished.  Students can personalize the app in various ways by adding their university, profile picture, program, and year. A grade calculator is also included to track success.

Colour association is used throughout the App with the subjects colour-coded, notifications colour coded in correlation to urgency, and the grade calculator uses colours as an index to academic standing.

From start to finish, Studentgizor will help you stay on task, meet deadlines, and see the positive results of your hard work.

Under the Nova Scotia Provincial Government, students with a disability can register with the NS Accessibility Directorate; when approved, they would be eligible for this App through the Equipment and Services Grant at no cost to the student.

NOTE:  The student will need to initiate this request.
