I have been an Accessibility Advisor with Student Accessibility Services at the University of Manitoba for over four years, mainly working with students with chronic medical conditions, hearing disabilities, and learning disabilities. I am the coordinator of the SAS Transcription Service, responsible for the recruitment, selection, and supervision of transcriptionists working both on campus and at a pre-service teaching practicum site located off campus.
