The following are some non-academic support services provided by AEU.
Advice on Assistive Technology Devices
Assistive technology is important to some students with disabilities and special needs. Assistive devices and software can help students increase their functionality and access to learning materials.
AEU may refer students to external agencies for professional assessment before deciding the best assistive technology for students to use in school. In addition, AEU has an assistive technology library with some common assistive devices and software available for students to loan on trial before making a decision to purchase.
Access to Facilities
AEU works in collaboration with the Office of Development and Facilities Management (ODFM) to ensure that students with mobility challenges are able to access classrooms and facilities with minimal assistance. Whenever necessary and feasible, ODFM will make arrangement to eliminate physical barriers so students who are using wheelchairs can gain access to classrooms and other facilities.
Career Counselling and Coaching
AEU collaborates with the Career & Attachment Office (CAO) to organise special career coaching sessions for students with disabilities and special needs with skills like resume writing and job interviews.
Counselling and Pastoral Care
AEU works closely with the University Wellbeing Centre (UWC) and School Pastoral Care staff to assist students with disabilities and special needs to manage their personal challenges like studying stress, adjustments to University life and more. Visit the UWC website
for more information.
Mobility and Orientation
AEU conducts mobility and orientation for students with mobility challenges (wheelchair users and vision loss) to help them familiarise with the NTU campus so that they are able to navigate around campus independently.
Special arrangement for Halls of Residence
AEU and the Housing and Auxiliary Services (HAS) identifies accessible halls of residence for students who are wheelchair users. In addition, AEU works with HAS to provide priority housing arrangements for students with disabilities and special needs.
Whenever necessary, AEU will work with parents, caregivers, therapists, medical doctors, and teachers to prepare students with disabilities and special needs to transit from junior colleges or polytechnics into NTU.
