Guidance on managing reasonable adjustments for disabled staff and students

reasonable-adjustments-coverNew guidance to assist institutions moving towards planned and anticipatory decision-making for reasonable adjustments for staff and students.

Through taking a strategic approach to building disabled people’s entitlement to reasonable adjustments into the overall planning cycle, institutions can create a consistent process and allocate sufficient resources, leading to a more inclusive culture and long term cost and efficiency savings.

Areas covered by the guidance include:

  • Making the case for an anticipatory approach
  • Delivering an anticipatory approach
  • Funding and resourcing reasonable adjustments
  • Publicising entitlements and available resources
  • Recommendations for action
