Disability support funding at Peterhouse

We're waiting for Esther Knowles to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Peterhouse, Cambridge,

1. I would like to know whether “X” college contributes any funding towards diagnoses of ADHD and autism carried out by Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) at Cambridge, for students belonging to the college.
2. If the answer to the above question is yes, I would like to know the percentage or amount of funding that is contributed towards the diagnoses and if a student needs to meet any criteria (please specify the criteria) in order to be eligible for the funding.
3. I would like to know whether the college funds any alternative support for autism, ADHD or other learning difficulties, through routes other than the ADRC. For example, private diagnoses or online mental health services.

Yours faithfully,

Esther Knowles

Dear Esther,

 

Thank you for your patience while the Tutorial team processed the Freedom
of Information request you sent.

I cannot speak for College “X” but as far as Peterhouse is concerned, our
position is as follows;

 

1.       I would like to know whether “X” college contributes any funding
towards diagnoses of ADHD and autism carried out by Accessibility and
Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) at Cambridge, for students belonging to
the college.

The ADRC offers this screening free of charge to students. Peterhouse will
contribute towards its funding through the annual College Levy.

 

 

2.     If the answer to the above question is yes, I would like to know
the percentage or amount of funding that is contributed towards the
diagnoses and if a student needs to meet any criteria (please specify the
criteria) in order to be eligible for the funding.

The College pays an annual levy, fixed by the Office of Intercollegiate
Services for University centrally funded services. You may wish to contact
them for the actual figure and/or percentage this equates to.

 

 

3.       I would like to know whether the college funds any alternative
support for autism, ADHD or other learning difficulties, through routes
other than the ADRC. For example, private diagnoses or online mental
health services.

Any of our students can approach their Tutor or a member of our welfare
team who will ascertain the best possible course of treatment and support
needed. The student may then apply for financial assistance with medical
expenses associated to this.

.

 

Kind regards,

 

Justine Kent
