Here you can find information about their events. Student Disability Services assists students with a number of disabilities, conditions and difficulties in the long term and in the short term. General requests can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or (0) 20 7679 0100. You can also contact the Director of Student Disability Services Venitia Stoby directly. UCL Student Disability Services operate a drop-in service, Monday to Friday, check here for their opening hours and where to find them. Here is an overview of disability services. UCL`s disability equality websites have important information for access to work, accessibility and computer disability, access to UCL buildings and specific learning difficulties. Up to 25% of people have some form of neurodivertity, including dyspraxia and dyspraxia, and people with autism, including Asperger`s syndrome. If you want more information, UCL has a network of neurodivergent staff.
If you`re not sure what constitutes neurodiversity, this is a good guide. The Persons with Disabilities Person is the UCLU`s interlocutor for students with disabilities. This office is currently managed by Louise Lee. UCL recently launched ACT: the Gambling Agreement, a tool to identify appropriate accommodations and flexible working agreements that have been agreed between an employee and his or her supervisor. Some employees may feel anxious when they make appropriate adjustment requests to their superiors – it is hoped that the ACT will allay this fear as it is evidence of UCL`s commitment to equality and inclusion. Similarly, some managers may be afraid to discuss topics they personally consider to be collaborators. The ACT provides a model to facilitate these Geography discussions as an office, field and laboratory-based discipline can lead to many challenges for students with disabilities and neurodiverse and staff to navigate. And it is our responsibility, as a service, to ensure that students and employees are not disadvantaged in their studies or in their day-to-day work. Launched by the Geography Discipline Network, the Inclusive Education Project offers a wide range of policies and case studies for students studying geography, land and the environment.
