STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

The University has growing numbers of students with disabilities who may present particular challenges to courses with large numbers of students. For example, a profoundly deaf student may be able to follow a lecture with the help of a sign language interpreter, but will not be able to take notes at the same time. A blind student may need special help with practical sessions. It is not possible to give detailed general advice on making the variety of teaching and learning methods described in this manual accessible to disabled students. However, the kind of support which they are likely to find helpful - e.g. provision of good handouts - often benefit all students. Students with disabilities are students first and foremost, and in many cases.

A little thought and ingenuity on the part of lecturing staff is all that is required in order to allow them full benefit from their classes. The student will often be the best judge of what is needed
