Going back to school

When going back to school there are many questions you may want to ask, for example:
  • Can you have two sets of books for each subject, one to keep at home and one for school?
    This will save you having to find ways to carry them around
  • Can textbooks be accessed via the internet?
  • Are the desks or tables at the right height for you?
  • Find out where the accessible toilet is and where you can keep a change of clothes in case of accidents
  • Store supplies you use often in a place you can easily get to
  • Consider how you are going to take part in swimming lessons. Look at the changing facilities , hoist and transport arrangements
Don’t be afraid to ask 

Visit the school to make sure you can get around.
The Occupational Therapy department in the NSIC will help you.
