Advice for Students with disabilities

Every year an increasing number of students with disabilities are going to college and graduating on to careers of their choice but in the run up to the leaving cert you don’t think beyond the exam and as you get your results you may have lots of questions about what they mean.

Your first port of call should be your guidancecounsellorin school or the CAO website. Information about the DARE scheme and the supplementary entry process, is available on their site, Access College.ie. Finally, if you have questions about the transition to college as a student with a disability, or want to know more about what supports there are, you can contact us. We are an organisation with expertise on what works for students with disabilities in higher education, training courses and employment. We provide information on accommodations that work for students with different disabilities in dealing with the day to day aspects of college life including admissions teaching and learning, study supports, examinations and career information. There is lots of information in our Inclusive Education section or you can contact us. We can give you advice about funding and grants available, disclosure of disability, accommodations and supports, learning supports, assistive technology and equipment, legal entitlements or just answer as best we can any questions you may have.

We would like to wish all students getting their results the very best of luck!

Leaving certificate results come out today Wednesday 17th August and CAO offers on the 22nd August.
