Please be aware we do not provide in class or workshop teacher aide type of support and the above services are an indication only. Specific supports will be discussed at initial meeting with disability staff.

All students with disabilities/impairments are encouraged to contact Disability Support for further information before commencing study. This is to ensure a wraparound of your support needs are in place as required.

Bring with you supporting documentation about your impairment and any information you have about your course including your timetable (if you already have this).
