  3. Library loan extensions.
  4. Specific Marking Guidelines for Students with a Specific Learning Difficulty.
  5. Providing access to Disabled parking (blue badge holders only).
  6. Providing Assistive Software (on loan equipment).
  7. Referral to RNIB bookshare.
  8. Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan.
  9. Offer advice and guidance on applying for funding for other support, such as Non-Medical Help, Specialist Equipment, or Assistance with any extra transport costs incurred by a disability.
