How could this affect me?
Organising support from college services prior to beginning your course is extremely important. It will also help you to settle in more quickly, and help you to feel part of college.
What to do next?
Read the sections on needs assessment, reasonable accommodations and meeting the Disability Service team.
Questions to think about
What kind of supports did I receive in school?
Will these be relevant in the third level environment, or to my course?
What tools do I need to support me to access my course content, navigate the physical and online environment, and to study?
