Disability Support – how to register
There is a registration process – this involves meeting with the Disability and Equity Support Officer to talk about how your condition impacts on study activities and what you may need.
- Your privacy & confidentiality will be respected – the Disability and Equity Support Officer only provides limited information to other staff, with your consent, so that adjustments and services can be arranged for you, when required.
- You do not need to have a permanent condition – you may also be eligible for assistance if you have an injury or condition which is temporary, changes from week to week or comes and goes.
- It is your personal choice whether you register with the Disability and Equity Support Officer – however if you would like us to provided services or adjustment to your study activities, you will need to register so that we can make these arrangements.
- There is a deadline to request alternative examination arrangements, such as extra work time, rest breaks etc. This date is the Census date for the unit. To check the Census date click here. For all other services and supports we also need a reasonable timeframe to make arrangements for you.
What to bring to your appointment with the Disability and Equity Support Officer:
- Request a Treating Health Practitioner Report form from the Disability and Equity Support Office. You will need it to collect supporting information from your doctor or preferably your specialist. You may also attach a letter or report from your specialist.
- For students with a specific learning disability, such as dyslexia, you will need to supply a certified copy of your latest Psychometric Assessment.
- Supporting documentation should be:
- Original or a certified copy (not a photocopy)
- Signed and dated
- On letterhead or stamped by your specialist (including provider number)
- Current : so that it gives accurate and up-to-date information about the nature of your condition or diagnosis and how it affects your study activities
