Topics will include:

  • What to expect during my first year at UTSC
  • What supports are available for my disability-related needs
  • What academic skills are useful in a university setting
  • How to connect with peers
  • How to keep my mind and body healthy

The program will also include resources designed for parents and caregivers to help support their student during their transition to university.
