dc.description.abstractIn this paper a comparison of two universities’ accommodations for disabled students was conducted. This comparison looked at governmental legislation and laws that shape university policies and practices. To understand the utilization of the policies and practices, this paper employed personal perspective or testimonials to garner a better understanding of the intersection of disability and tertiary education in two different countries. The universities selected for this comparative study are York University in Canada and the University of the West Indies, Mona campus, Jamaica. This paper applied a three tier approach - Macro, Meso and Micro level- in analyzing the intersection of disability and education. This paper also looks at the cultural influence on legislation, university policies and the individual experience. Through this research a greater depth of understanding of how these accommodation guidelines intersect with disability services was achieved.en_US
