10:00am - eQuality Solutions Disability Support
How do high-quality psychological assessments lead to high-quality Non-Medical Help support?
Join The Educational Guidance Service’s (EGS) Operations Director, Jane Goldthorpe, as she explores what is involved in a high-quality psychological assessment for neurodiversity, such as SpLDs. Jane will walk us through the entire psychological assessment process. You’ll learn how and why students are referred to EGS for an assessment and how a report from EGS can lead to accessing bespoke support through the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). Jane will also talk about the difficulties students might identify before the assessment, as well as how these are addressed during the assessment.
eQS Head of Operations, Natasha Hardiman, will then showcase a series of three real-life student case studies. These will explore the services and resources recommended to each DSA student, their individual circumstances and how the Non-Medical Help (NMH) support professional was able to help maximise the student's retention and attainment thanks to the information gathered during the psychological assessments.

12:00pm - KAZ Type
How transformative typing can boost productivity, efficiency & confidence in neurodivergent and visually impaired students.
Learning to touch type isn't merely about typing speed - it's a gateway for students to amplify their productivity and deliver articulate responses in assignments and exams. The absence of this fundamental skill for neurodivergent students often results in responses that merely scratch the surface, leaving thoughts unsaid. Discover how learning to touch type can free the conscious mind, remove a barrier to learning and empower students to articulate thoughts effectively, bridging the gap between 'just enough' and detailed insights.
Watch a demonstration on how the course works and learn about its specialised features addressing cognitive limitations, visual disturbances and short memory.
Learn about KAZ’s new VI option, developed with help and guidance from the Thomas Pocklington Trust and incorporated into the course for free.
