A Road Map for Disability Support in Higher Education in Ireland
Wednesday, 25th July 2018
Over the course of 2017-2019, the Association for Higher Education Access and Disability (AHEAD), in collaboration with the Disability Advisers Working Network (DAWN), produced a series of outputs to lay out a vision for inclusive education in higher education, to clearly define the role of the Disability Officer in Irish higher Education Institutions and to explore standards in the provision of reasonable accommodations in HEIs committed to a whole college approach to inclusion. This work resulted in the production of 3 documents and the collation of a host of resources.
