What do we mean by the term 'disability'?

Loughborough University works with a social model of disability. This means that we acknowledge that students are disabled by the social barriers which they face, barriers which can be removed.  

The Equality Act 2010 defines a disability as a long-term condition, which lasts, or is likely to last, over 12 months and which has a substantial and adverse effect on someone’s ability to perform day-to-day activities. The Act gives disabled students protection from discrimination and the right to request reasonable adjustments as a result of their disability.

The Disability Office works to support students with any difficulty which is having a disabling impact on their studies. This might include, but is not limited to, Asperger’s Syndrome, visual or hearing impairments, medical conditions (including for example, epilepsy, diabetes, cancer and HIV), mental health difficulties, specific learning differences (i.e. dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia), AD(H)D and physical disabilities.
