Guides for Academics by Students with Disabilities
Since the deaf students are often on their own, the learning experience can often be isolating, confusing and difficult.
If writing on a whiteboard, read out as much of what you are writing as feasible and practical.
Some students are reluctant to inform teachers about their illness unless they have to.
Linking concepts with analogies or experiences are often highly effective with dyslexic students.
If a student is in a wheel chair or with a walking aid, clear the room from the doorway so they can get through.
Many low floor trams go to University of Melbourne. The stop is right in front of the Sidney Myer Asia Centre.
Acquired Brain Injury
Working in group activities with other students can be daunting and/or intimidating.
I am affected the most during exam period. I start getting nervous from the date exam timetables are released.
In the classroom sometimes I can't read the presentation slides properly if they have a white or bright background.
Melbourne Uni has a massive campus. Try to keep lectures and tutorials within their allotted time slots to allow time to get between venues.
Hearing Loops Demystified
Using a hearing induction loop is super convenient! There is no additional equipment that you need apart from your hearing aids and the built in telecoil.
