Skills Development for Disabled Students

The UCL Student Disability Service offers a range of skill development opportunities for disabled students tailored to individual requirements. For example, students with literacy difficulties resulting from dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties can have one to one tuition to enable them to develop good compensatory strategies. Students with Asperger syndrome who have difficulty with social interaction are offered individual mentoring that will help them, for example, develop the skills necessary to work with others. Deaf and hearing impaired students who may need additional help with developing their writing skills can have individual tuition. Students with mental health difficulties can have mentoring to assist them in keeping the focus necessary to pursue their academic studies successfully. A range of specialist software and assistive technology is available to students in the Student Enabling IT suite, and disabled students can learn how best to make use of these by having tuition from the Disability IT Support Officer.
