Making a Reasonable Adjustment Plan (RAP) appointment with a Disability Adviser

  • Send Disability & Learner Support a copy of your medical evidence or Educational Psychology report and complete our registration form.
  • If you do not have medical evidence, you can use our medical evidence form to request this from a medical professional.
  • If you were assessed for a Specific Learning Difficulty aged 16 or older, please send us a copy as it may be suitable for us to put support in place for you without you having to be reassessed. We can also support students to access Educational Psychology Assessments.
