Students with disability require special considerations and in some cases only distance or online support is not enough. Therefore, I will work closely with the Disability officers to coordinate and liaise the university to organize additional personalized support staff to those who require in person support. This will help students with disability to complete their studies successfully. Nevertheless, it must be understood that all the added personal protection materials are provided for both the student and the support provider to protect them from exposure to Covid-19. My spouse is a carer in a care home, and from her experience I have come to appreciate the effort they have done to keep the assisted elderly residents needs are provided without endangering them and the carers. Therefore, I believe it is possible to provide a support that dignifies disabled students to succeed by providing them right close and distance support.
