Disability support is available at Deakin

What support do you need with your studies? Deakin’s vibrant and diverse community includes many students who have a learning barrier or disability. This can be experienced as a result of a wide range of conditions and includes students who care for a person with disability. 

If you know – or think – you may be in this group, the Disability Resource Centre (DRC) may be able to assist you. The DRC supports the University community to be more inclusive of, and provide adjustments for, students for whom a disability, health or mental health condition affects their access to education. 

When you register with the DRC, you’ll be assigned a Disability Liaison Officer (DLO), who will help you access the services appropriate to your disability or condition. You might also receive a Learning Access Plan (LAP), which is designed to minimise any educational disadvantage.
