About me

I am a Senior Study Needs Practitioner based in the study needs assessment team within Access West of England (part of the Access and Learning Strategies team). 

Access West of England carries out study needs assessments for the Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA). Access Learning Strategies also carries out screening and diagnostic assessments for specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia) and one-to-one specialist study skills support and specialist mentoring.  The work we do as a service has a positive impact on recruitment, retention and achievement of disabled students at UWE Bristol and directly enhances the student experience. 

I carry out study needs assessments for disabled students. The aim is to remove barriers to learning via a package of support strategies. Support may be provided by the institution directly or funded through the Disabled Students' Allowance. DSA funded strategies may include human support and/or assistive technology.
