News from the National Deaf Children’s Society:

The pandemic has created specific accessibility problems for those students who are D/deaf, blind, or visually impaired. Alongside the Thomas Pocklington Trust we have launched a survey looking at the experience of D/deaf, blind & visually impaired students because of Covid/ also the DSA experience.

If you know any D/deaf, blind or VI university students it would be great if you could encourage them to take part here. Survey in BSL: https://cypteam.typeform.com/to/V2QxvVFs Survey for those with screen readers: https://cypteam.typeform.com/to/ZtihtBOl
