Information for Staff: Supporting Disabled Students

The Disability Advisers in the Disability & Wellbeing Service have a role to advise University staff on how best to support their students. Advisers are happy to provide advice and guidance, training and development in specific and general areas of disabled student support, University policy, Disability Awareness and other areas.

The sections below provide information intended to give University staff more information about how we support disabled students. If you have a query that is not answered here, please contact us for more information.

We also run a variety of development opportunities through OSDU:

  • Ensure an inclusive approach in the classroom
  • Disability awareness
  • Working with students with Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Working with students with dyslexia/specific learning difficulties
  • Working with students who are deaf/hearing impaired
  • Working with students who are blind/visually impaired
  • Making documents accessible
