    I know this is a busy time of year, but I am having problems with some of my lecturers not providing lectures online in the way that I need so i asked to see a DDA advisor at my university
    I have been told that the earliest appointment I can have is in 3 weeks time by which point I will be on placement (which I also am worried about & wanted to ask for help with)
    Is this a normal length of time to expect to have to wait? To me it feels very unacceptable. 😕
    What are other people's experiences?

    I think it can vary depending on how many people they have wanting appointments, if you have the contact details of an advisor then i would suggest maybe emailing them for whatever support they can give you that way whilst you wait for an appointment. Do you have DSA in place for you?

    What about emailing your disability advisor or personal tutor/advisor?
    I had to get my academic advisor to chase up my needs assessment before that happened.
    Maybe your course leader could help too? Make them aware you have an SpLD and find some areas aren't accessible enough for you

    I second talking to your tutor. Are you lecturers aware of your problems? I found it was a case of emailing my lecturers and telling them this is what I need and this is helpful. They were brilliant in this ascept.
