Hi, I am Melanie, ask me questions about being a disabled student now
Hello, my name is Melanie and I am a disability outreach officer for a university. My work involves preparing disabled (includes dyslexia and autism spectrums; long term health conditions; and mental health difficulties) students with their transition from school or college into university. University can be a scary thought for the majority of students and disabled students can prepare for the realities of higher education if they are given realistic information. I can answer questions such as :
What are the Disabled Students Allowances (DSA)?
When should I apply for DSA?
What sort of support can I get at university?
Should I tell the university about me disability?
Can I have extra time in exams?
