We have a range of assistive technology available for students to loan on a short and long term basis. Students who are not eligible for Disabled Student’s Allowance can access this equipment alongside students who need short term loans until their own DSA equipment has been delivered.
Mind View mind mapping software is available for all students to access on any networked computer on campus. A number of computers in both Murray Library and St Peters campus Library have TextHelp Read and Write software and Dragon Naturally Speaking assistive software packages available for students. These computers are bookable.
Often students will apply for funding for their own equipment through Disabled Students Allowance, the Disability Support Team can give guidance on how to do this or see our Disabled Students Allowance Page.
North East Regional Assessment Centre (NERAC). NERAC provides Study Needs Assessments for Disabled Students Allowance which includes the recommendation of assistive technology where appropriate.
