Information for Parents
As a parent, you have an opportunity to help your son or daughter experience a smooth transition to Red River College. Here are some ways you can be most supportive:
- Assist your son or daughter in ensuring documentation meets RRC requirements
- Help your son or daughter understand and effectively communicate the effects of their disability, their strengths, needs and preferences
- Work with your son or daughter to develop self-advocacy skills so they can take responsibility for their learning and understand the requirements that they must meet in order to be successful in their academic endeavors
Students with disabilities are responsible for self-identifying and requesting accommodations (based on individual needs) to Student Accessibility Services. The goal of our department is to establish a cooperative and responsible working relationship with each student. Therefore, we would like to stress that while it is our responsibility to provide students with the accommodations required, it is the responsibility of each student to inform us of their needs, any problems encountered with the accommodations and services, and to follow through with the procedures as outlined.
