Our Disability Assistants provide one-to-one assistance to disabled students with specified tasks, such as:

  • taking notes in class on behalf of students, most commonly D/deaf students or students who have difficulty with note taking due to a physical impairment.
  • on-campus mobility and other physical tasks
  • assisting in the production of accessible format materials

When a student requires the support of a Disability Assistant, the Disability Adviser will create a written agreement which details the nature of the support to be provided, and which both the student accessing the support, and the Disability Assistant, will be asked to adhere to.
