For example, note takers, accessible lecture theatres, adjustable benches, extra time for assignments and exams, part time study, adaptive technology, screen readers or alternative exam venues
Based on your requirements the Disability Liaison Officer or Student Support Officer at your tertiary institution will draw up an access plan for you.
