Yet again a smashing info trail!
I'm DeafBlind in the UK, arguing accessibility cases in health and social
care.
I've seen various 'chats' on other issues too.
Wondering if anything 'coordinated' might arise from the education sector.
Apologies for any nastiness, just trying to move things along.
Massive,
Howard

We tend to refer this kind of student issue to our Office of Student
Disabilities. They work directly with out students needing accommodation and
have more expertise in this area.

We appreciate your input though.

for Students with Disabilities. In the course of our research we found that
most student with disabilities were not aware of all the grants,
scholarships and education resources that are available to them. So we
decided to create a user-friendly guide that explores rights and protection
provided by law, the many different education opportunities as well as
in-depth grants and scholarship programs designed specifically to support
higher education. We hope our guide will not only answer common questions,
but make it easier for those living with disabilities to leverage the
educational benefits they have earned.

Many publications and organizations already use our guides as resources for
their readers. Here are a few examples:

as "Best Schools"

the best place for it on your site.
