There are a whole range of supports available to students with disabilities and these are very much decided based on the needs of the individual student. However there are common supports given to students with certain types of disability and we’ve gathered some of them below to give you an idea of what’s out there. It’s important to note that this is not an exhaustive list, but is designed to get you started and point you in the right direction in terms of supporting a student.

Students who fall into these categories may require one or a combination of supports.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students

Blind and Partially Sighted Students.

Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. Dyslexia)

Significant Ongoing Illnesses Such as Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, Epilepsy etc
