Once you have registered with Disability Support Services, we can provide needs assessments to identify which supports are most effective for you and your programme of study. Supports may include one-to-one tutoring tailored to individual needs, arrangements for exam accommodations and incorporation of assistive technology into your learning.

  • Email or phone us and we will agree an appointment.
  • Bring in work samples, the piece of work you will be working on, and any other information that you think might be helpful.
  • Remember that we are not a proof reading service, so be prepared to work through drafts, possibly over several appointments.
