Should I declare my vision impairment to university teaching staff?

If you give permission for your support plans (which you should have developed with the help of your University's Disability Support Office) to be passed onto your tutors, they should automatically be made aware of your situation. However, sometimes this does not always happen.

Therefore you may like to introduce yourself to your lecturers, and check they are aware of your support plan and any extra requirements you may have. This will make sure that you are able to get the very best from your course right from the start.

For further information on setting up a support plan see How do I make sure my accessibility needs such as access to materials and finding my way around are met when I start University? and RNIB's Negotiating support at University web page.
