Jordan’s Principle is a child-first and needs-based principle that applies equally to all First Nations children resident on or off reserve. It ensures there is no denial or delay for First Nations children in receiving essential public services that are available to all other children by having the government department of first contact pay for the service.

The Learning Disability Services Clinic (LDSC) is a program that provides assessments and related services to University of Manitoba students. The LDSC is located at the PSC and is run jointly by the PSC and the Student Counselling Centre. All work is done by graduate student clinicians who are supervised by registered psychologists. This supervisor is ultimately responsible for the work that is done. No fees are charged for the services and the cost of operating the clinic is funded by the University of Manitoba. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions, we had to suspend all assessment services through the Learning Disability Services Clinic. Assessment services will be resumed as long as provincial and university related guidelines allow. All students currently on the waitlist will be contacted in due course. No new referrals are being accepted at this time due to the length of the current waitlist. Their website will be updated when the waitlist reopens for new referrals. As an interim measure, we are offering a consultation service for currently registered University of Manitoba students who suspect they have a learning disability (related to reading, writing, and/or math) and who are currently residing in Manitoba. The Learning Disability Consultation Service (LDCS) will provide these students an opportunity to talk to a Psychologist about their academic and learning difficulties in order to identify possible resources and services that could help them (e.g., referral for exam writing accommodations).
