The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) has released a research report on "Understanding Accessibility in Graduate Education for Students with Disabilities in Canada". Based on the findings, the report offer recommendations in the following areas:

1. Increasing our knowledge of students with disabilities in graduate education;
2. Leveling the playing field and providing equal opportunities to graduate students with disabilities; and
3. Increasing the effectiveness of academic and co-curricular accommodations in the graduate environment.

More details, and the report in Word and PDF formats, are available at http://neads.ca/en/about/projects/graduate-taskforce/index.php. 

(Note: One of the links - Part 1- Incorporating Reasonable Accommodations (Word version) is currently broken; the team has been notified and they would fix it soon, hopefully).
