  • Whatever your ideas, the fact remains that there are MANY types of disabilities and MANY ways of making learning accessible for these.
    We have to be aware of all ways in which we can enable the learner (ALL of our learners) to learn and for this reason – the following analogy is offered:
  • The DDA states:
    “Discrimination against disabled applicants or students can take place in either of two ways:
    by treating them "less favourably" than other people or,
    by failing to make a "reasonable adjustment" when they are placed at a "substantial disadvantage" compared to other people for a reason relating to their disability.” AND THEN “Under the Act, there is a responsibility to make anticipatory adjustments. This means that institutions should consider what adjustments future disabled students or applicants may need, and make them in advance.”
  • This page is another page of links to other websites and to worksheets.

  • 1. Assistive Technology Another look at the use of technology to make learning more inclusive and accessible. David Sugden
  • 2. Education Providers' Responsibilities (any ideas?)
  • 3. Education Providers' Responsibilities In addition to not treating a disabled person 'less favourably' for a reason relating to their disability (by, for instance, marking a student down in an exam because they are dyslexic), institutions are required to make 'reasonable adjustments' if a disabled person is placed at a 'substantial disadvantage'. Anticipatory: Duty to make reasonable adjustments to avoid discrimination against disabled people in the future and make any appropriate adjustments in advance.
