This session will provide both professional and academic staff an overview of UQ's responsibility toward students with a disability (SWD), the role of Student Services and how they can assist you, and strategies on how to approach students who present with a disability.

This course will enable participants to:

1. Understand their rights and responsibilities in supporting SWD;
2. Incorporate disability inclusive practices in the classroom and/or in decision-making processes;
3. Receive information and guidance when working with SWD that may have a functional consequence of socially difficult behaviour; and
4. Develop an understanding of Mental Health and how to provide relevant support and information.
