dear colleagues

apologies if this message is of no interest/relevance to you.

I have signed up for this forum as I work with pre- and post-entry to university for disabled students - including students who are Deaf or hard of hearing. we have a fledgeling website - under my electronic signature - which gives a few details of what we do and why we do it. I work with an extraordinary Deaf ambassador who works alongside me and has had the opportunity to co-present at a number of conferences and staff training.

in addition to my widening participation work, I am also a professional, qualified scribe/notetaker and one of the first to sign up for our professional body - the Association for Noetaking Professionals - ANP. I am also a doctoral student assessing the experiences of D/deaf students who have been supported by notetakers at some point in their university studies. the research came about as a response to the number of D/deaf students who have inadequate and/or non existent notetaking support. I have been working with a small group of D/deaf students who have acted as co-researchers for the study as I do not regard myself as an expert in this area.

apologies if this introduction is too long but I thought it would be a good idea, and courteous to let you know why I have signed up. anything which benefits the students and ambassadors I work with, will be very welcome.

thank you for your time
