Specialized services

The services must be recommended by the person responsible for integrating persons with disabilities at your educational institution. This ensures that each service compensates adequately for your disability.

The amount of the allowance varies depending on your level of education and whether you are studying full-time or part-time.

Expenses for the following services may be reimbursed by the Program:

  • Reader: audio recording of the content of course notes and required books related to the studies for a person with a severe visual impairment
  • Note-taker: taking of course notes
  • Transcriber: taking of notes word for word
  • Interpreter: translation of course content into Québec sign language or signed language, which includes gestures and a mouthing part for a person with a hearing impairment
  • Attendant or academic support for different situations: exams, library research, tutoring, hygiene or mobility
