Inclusion Alberta and PDD Programs

Inclusive education opportunities at King’s are supported by Inclusion Alberta, a non-profit organization, and the Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) program, funded by the province of Alberta. These partnerships support students with developmental disabilities to thrive in their academics, find a place of belonging at King’s, pursue career aspirations following their King’s education, and more. 

What to expect

Join King’s for up to four years of advanced audit study leading to a certificate of completion and participation in convocation. While auditing courses, students work at an individual pace of study with flexible learning outcomes while continuing to engage in classroom experiences with their peers. All of this is done while working closely with a member of King’s Inclusive Post-Secondary Education team, instructors and staff, who assist with both class work and finding employment that aligns with your program of study.
