Reimagining DSA Summit

10 December 2020

DSA is a key element in enabling access to higher education, but students with disabilities are facing a unique set of challenges in obtaining the support and assistive technology they need to pursue their studies. 

The keynote speakers at our December 10 Summit both contributed to a ground breaking report by the Higher Education Commission called Arriving at Thriving: Leaning from Disabled Students to Ensure Access for All. 

The report examines the challenges and barriers experienced by disabled students and makes12 recommendations for improving the support they receive at their higher education institutions. Megan Hector of Policy Connect wrote the report while Piers Wilkinson, a former Disability Officer at the National Union of Students sat on the report's steering group.

Anyone with an interest in DSA should attend BATA’s Reimagining DSA Summit. To reserve a place please register here.
