Accessibility Service Registration
The Accessibility Service provides information and services to assist you in your studies. Students are encouraged to make contact with the Accessibility Service early.
Students who require alternative print formats or the use of a sign language interpreter should contact the Service well before enrolment in order for the support systems to be set up in advance of your course.
Please complete the registration under the ‘Accessibility Services’ tab on MyWaikato
Supporting documentation guidelines
Applications for support services must include current supporting documentation from a doctor, therapist, or other appropriate health professional. Seeking information about a student’s condition is used by the Accessibility Services Office in establishing and verifying the impairment and understanding how impairment may impact a student. This also serves in making informed decisions about accommodations alongside the student.
Supporting documentation could include the following:
- Be current and provide a specific diagnosis of the disability, impairment or medical condition and identify whether the disability is permanent, temporary or fluctuating
- Describe in detail the limitations/impact this disability has on the individual and on their study
- Recommend specific equipment and/or support services and why these are needed
- Establish the professional credentials of the evaluator.
This can be uploaded to MyWaikato as part of the registration or sent directly to [email protected] once registered
