#inclusion for disabled students isn't just about wheelchair accessibility or extra time during exams - true inclusion is when students with disabilities/mental health conditions are understood and reached out to, so they can feel comfortable to talk about their individual needs.

Include the person, not just the disability.

This christmas, why not give someone the gift of DSA. Disabled Students Allowances can cover some of the extra costs you may have because of a mental health problem, long term illness, Specific Learning Difficulty or any other disability. They can provide help with specialist equipment, non-medical helpers, extra travel costs because of your disability or other disability-related costs of studying. So if you, or someone you know may be eligible for Disabled Students Allowances, get in touch with Access2Learn to find out more. Visit www.access2learn.co.uk to find out more, or call 0203 861 3460.

Merry Christmas from everyone at Access2Learn
