Educational Support Worker Pack - Screen ShotThe purpose of this appendix is to provide a Disability Service Educational Support Worker Pack. This sample pack is provided by DAWN and is to be used to guide educational support workers hired by Disability Services to provide supports such as note-taking, Irish Sign Language interpretation, speed-text, personal assistance etc. The pack outlines the roles and responsibilities of each type of support worker and outlines the responsibilities of the student in the relationship.

About the Road Map for Inclusion

'Inclusive Learning and the Provision of Reasonable Accommodations to Students with Disabilities in Higher Education in Ireland' is part of a series of outputs produced by the Association for Higher Education Access and Disability (AHEAD), in collaboration with the Disability Advisers Working Network (DAWN). It brings together two years of research on the inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education and concludes that an inclusive approach based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles would provide an effective framework to include and improve the retention of, not only students with disabilities, but a diverse range of students including migrants, mature students, international students, and students from different socio-economic backgrounds.

The values underpinning the Road Map series are explained in the following video:
