University support for Cerebral Palsy
I am a Wellbeing Project Worker a University Student Services and have been seconded to organise a series of 'Lunch & Learn' sessions for staff. Each month we focus on how to provide the best support for students with a specific disability. The idea of the sessions is to share and increase knowledge and good practice relevant to our work in student services. There is a lot of theory, research etc discussed but I feel the main focus has to be what people with the disability (and those around them) feel we should provide.
Later in the academic year, one of the sessions will be focussing on Cerebral Palsy. so I would be grateful for your thoughts on how best staff in a University Student Services facility can support students with cerebral palsy. All thoughts welcome and I hope we can improve the day to day service we provide.
