    University student perspectives on institutional non-disclosure of disability and learning challenges: reasons for staying invisible

    It is suspected that there is a much larger population of students who choose non-disclosure, and therefore decide not to access support. Very little is known about the reasons for non-disclosure as this group represents a hidden population in higher education. This research identified that there were sound reasons for non-disclosure, students continually weigh up potential disclosure during their study, and students have difficulty with the disclosure process. We conclude that institutions need to understand that they have an invisible group of non-disclosing SWD in their student populations and that, to meet their learning challenges, universities need to support changes to policies, procedures and curriculum design.  (International Journal of Inclusive Education. Volume 23, 2019. Susan Grimes, Erica Southgate, Jill Scevak and Rachel Buchanan.  )

    Webinar: Supporting students with dyslexia at university

    This presentation gives details about a research project conducted at a regional university in Australia about how to better support university students with dyslexia. The study included a validated self-report survey (used for recruitment), student interviews and a focus group made up of staff from the university. It concludes that identification of students with dyslexia is an extremely complex issue, and the best way to support these students and other at-risk learners is to adopt principles of Universal Design. The presentation includes specific recommendations for following these principles. (October 2019)
