Information for staff

We provide advice and guidance to staff supporting disabled students.

We support students with a range of disabilities, including but not limited to:

  • Specific learning difficulties (SpLDs), such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, or attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder (AD(H)D).
  • Mental health difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar affective disorder, personality disorders, or psychosis.
  • Autistic spectrum conditions, such as Asperger syndrome.
  • Sensory impairments, such as a visual or hearing impairment, blindness, or deafness (with or without British Sign Language as a first or preferred language). 
  • Mobility difficulties, such as paralysis, scoliosis, chronic pain, difficulty walking, or using a wheelchair. 
  • Long-term health conditions, such as arthritis, epilepsy, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, narcolepsy, repetitive strain injury (RSI), cancer, HIV, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, lupus, or chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME).
