Emma talks about the support her college provides.


We have a lift that obviously helps. On a more personal level I have two 'one to ones' to help with things like writing and physical things like if I need them in the loo or, anything like that really, so yeah that obviously helps, very much. And everyone like student wise everyone is opening the doors… if they see, and all that, so it’s very well equipped I think.
In secondary school here I would get extra time and even in primary school, so yeah, which is obviously a big help. Yes they have done an amazing job of making sure that provisions are in place if changes need to be made. Because I’m just the same as anybody else, that’s how I feel here, it’s just a normal person basically, and I just do everything that they do so it doesn’t really make any difference.
