What does the Disability Advice Team do and how can I contact them?The Disability Advice Team is part of The Student Advice and Wellbeing Service. They are responsible for the co-ordination of support for current and prospective disabled students. The team provide advice and guidance to students on how to access the most appropriate study provisions. Liverpool John Moores University is committed to supporting students and will make reasonable adjustments to allow students to concentrate on their academic studies and support their independence.
You can make an appointment with an Adviser by contacting the Team directly:
Phone: 0151 904 6037 or 6052
Email: email@example.comLJMU staff in the Student Zones can also book appointments; you should approach the Hub at any of the Learning Resource Centres to do this. Confidential appointments take place in meeting rooms within each of the LRCs, you should state which location is the most convenient for you when booking an appointment. At busy times it may not be possible to accommodate your preferred choice of location.
When should I go to the Disability Advice Team?
Disclosure of disability and discussion relating to your support needs can be made at any time, but this is best done before you start your course. This will ensure that suitable provisions and adaptations can be provided from the beginning of your course. Students who are already accessing support and have concerns or questions about the support they are receiving should contact the Disability Advice Team directly to discuss any issues they may have.
What will happen in my appointment with a member of the Disability Advice Team and who will I see?You will meet with a Disability Adviser for an informal discussion about your support requirements. This may be based on support that you have accessed for previous studies, or support you feel will be beneficial to you now. If you have a disability or medical condition, you will be asked to provide medical evidence from your G.P, hospital consultant or Educational Psychologist Report. We will also explain how to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances, which may fund the majority if your support requirements.
