Supporting Deaf students in 20/21?23 Jun 2020
Distributed by NADP – raising awareness of guidance for higher education providers on supporting deaf students to access remote learning and assessment, produced for the Office for Students: https://www.ndcs.org.uk/blog/remote-learning-in-higher-education-for-deaf-students/
Extracted from guidance: ‘Some students may not have communication support through Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs) because they did not feel they needed in normal circumstances. However, it is possible for students to make a late application for Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs), which can cover the cost of booking a palantypist or BSL interpreter. It may be reasonable for HE providers to cover the cost of booking communication support until the application is completed’.
