My daughter has just returned to University after finishing rehab for a benign tumour which was discovered in February this year. She has been remarkable in her determination but has gone back against advice as rehab wanted her to wait at least a year. She is finding it really tough and her disabled students Assessment was delayed and won't take place until end Novemenber too late for this term really.
She is really struggling as she keeps getting lost in the town and her planning and memory issues mean she is not the student she was before. This is personally devastating for her and puts additional pressure on her attempts to do her work.
The University have been quite good but just done seem to get that her memory issues mean she needs more than an hour extra in an exam!
It would be so good if anyone out there has studied and overcome/ found strategies that work who could share these? I
I am hoping to do my own research and put together some packs for the university and possibly other Universities so they can better understand the difficulties students may face.
