Inclusion and Accessibility: support for students with disabilities and Specific Learning Disorder (SLD)/learning disabilitiesServizi
The University of Verona supports students with disabilities and Specific Learning Disorder (SLD)/learning disabilities from enrolment to graduation by providing them with the support they need to effectively participate in the educational activities of the University.
Our University has chosen to promote a culture of inclusion, valuing diversity and enhancing the strengths of each person, providing training tailored to each individual’s needs through specific auxiliary aids and services.
The Inclusion and Accessibility unit works closely with the Rector’s Delegate for Equal Access to Education, the Scientific Committee for Inclusion and Accessibility, the representatives of Schools and Departments, and the Equal Opportunities Commission.
The services we provide are detailed in the Guide to Services.
