We want to ensure that all students have equal access to the range of teaching, learning, and social opportunities offered at LIS. Wherever reasonably possible, we’ll make adjustments to the way we teach and assess students to accommodate those with disabilities, including mental health disabilities.
At LIS, and in light of the Equality Act, we use the term “disability” to include any physical, sensory, or intellectual impairment (i.e., mobility impairment, visual impairment/blindness, hearing impairment/deafness), certain medical conditions (i.e., HIV, cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis), mental health difficulties, Asperger’s Syndrome, or specific learning differences (SpLDs) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, or ADHD/ADD.
Disclosing a disability to us is a personal matter and is down to individual choice. If you do disclose a disability, it will help us to let you know your options for reasonable adjustments. It helps to disclose a disability as early as possible—but you can do so at any time. For more information on our provision for students with disabilities and specific learning differences, please take a look at our Disability Policy. If you have any further questions, you can contact the Student Support department at firstname.lastname@example.org, where we’ll treat your enquiry confidentially.
