AccessAbility Services is make up of a team of Disability Support Coordinators, Disability Administrators and Sessional Assessors. We will support and assist anyone with a disability, including specific learning difficulties, mental health needs and with physical and unseen disabilities.

We can advise on Disabled Student Allowances, accessibility issues and a wide range of support and adjustments to meet the individual needs of students. We also offer a diagnostic service for students who think they may have a specific learning difficulty.

Reasonable adjustments in assessment guidance has been developed to provide information for students (PDF, file size: 1.34MB) and information for staff (PDF, file size: 1.43MB) . The guidance provides clear and concise information around all aspects of reasonable adjustments including:

  • What are reasonable adjustments
  • How adjustments are identified
  • What is the difference between reasonable adjustments and exceptional circumstances?
  • What a Learning Support Statement is
  • Disabled Student Allowances (DSA)
  • Alternative Assessments
  • Placements

This topic list is not exhaustive – for more information, please access the relevant guidance

The Service is also home to the Staffordshire Regional Access Centre. The centre undertakes DSA Study Needs Assessments in Stoke, Stafford or Shrewsbury for any student who is in receipt of Disabled Students Allowances, no matter where they're studying.
