The Centre provides a complex range of services. Applicants, students and staff members can bring their problems to the experts employed by the Centre. The areas of consultations cover:
Currently there are 50 permanent clients of the Centre
About 500 consultations are provided in a year. The interest is growing constantly. The Centre also provides further education to the University staff. Students with special learning needs can depend on a wide range of support tools and compensation equipment.
The path-guided indoor navigation system provides more autonomy around the campus to people with special needs. Braille labels make life so much easier for the visually impaired. So do the assistive listening systems, for example induction loops, for the hearing-impared people. A database of digitalised texts and streaming of lectures by the technology Mediasite is available on a study portal. Clients can work with specialised software, notebooks and printers.
Adaptations of classrooms and Halls of Residence to the needs of students with disabilities
Two classrooms and four rooms in the Halls of Residence have been adapted to suit needs of 9 physically-impaired students. The Centre employees assistants who accompany their clients around the campus.
