I write on behalf of my daughter who has ASD, anxiety, depression and selective mutism.
She attends college twice a week. The rest of the week is online lessons. She gets LSA support in class, but no help with online lessons. We have asked if she can record these due to her slow processing as they sometimes go too fast for her to keep up. I thought this would be a reasonable adjustment under the Equality Act for personal use. College have responded “As things stand, we cannot record lessons as this is not current college practice and it raises issues under the Data Protection Act.“
Is this correct as I notice other colleges and Uni’s allow this? Do you know of any case law to support this?
