Disability Supplementary Information Notice For Enrolment

The purpose of the Disability supplement is to provide additional information to assist you with answering the disability question on the Enrolment Form.

Disability in the contexts provided below does not include short-term disabling health conditions such as a fractured leg, influenza, or corrected physical conditions such as impaired vision managed by wearing glasses or lenses.

  • Hearing/deaf - Hearing impairment is used to refer to a person who has an acquired mild, moderate, severe or profound hearing loss after learning to speak, communicates orally and maximises residual hearing with the assistance of amplification. A person who is deaf has a severe or profound hearing loss from, at, or near birth and mainly relies upon vision to communicate, whether through lip reading, gestures, cued speech, finger spelling and/or sign language.
  • Physical - A physical disability affects the mobility or dexterity of a person and may include a total or partial loss of a part of the body. A physical disability may have existed since birth or may be the result of an accident, illness, or injury suffered later in life; for example, amputation, arthritis, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, paraplegia, quadriplegia or post-polio syndrome.
  • Intellectual In general, the term ‘intellectual disability’ is used to refer to low general intellectual functioning and difficulties in adaptive behaviour, both of which conditions were manifested before the person reached the age of 18. It may result from infection before or after birth, trauma during birth, or illness.
  • Learning - A general term that refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders manifested by significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, or mathematical abilities. These disorders are intrinsic to the individual, presumed to be due to central nervous system dysfunction, and may occur across the life span. Problems in self-regulatory behaviours, social perception, and social interaction may exist with learning disabilities but do not by themselves constitute a learning disability.
  • Mental illness - Mental illness refers to a cluster of psychological and physiological symptoms that cause a person suffering or distress and which represent a departure from a person’s usual pattern and level of functioning.
  • Acquired brain impairment - Acquired brain impairment is injury to the brain that results in deterioration in cognitive, physical, emotional or independent functioning. Acquired brain impairment can occur as a result of trauma, hypoxia, infection, tumour, accidents, violence, substance abuse, degenerative neurological diseases or stroke. These impairments may be either temporary or permanent and cause partial or total disability or psycho-social maladjustment.
  • Vision - This covers a partial loss of sight causing difficulties in seeing, up to and including blindness. This may be present from birth or acquired as a result of disease, illness or injury.
  • Medical condition - Medical condition is a temporary or permanent condition that may be hereditary, genetically acquired or of unknown origin. The condition may not be obvious or readily identifiable, yet may be mildly or severely debilitating and result in fluctuating levels of wellness and sickness, and/or periods of hospitalisation; for example, HIV/AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, asthma or diabetes.
  • Other - A disability, impairment or long-term condition which is not suitably described by one or several disability types in combination. Autism spectrum disorders are reported under this category.

Student Support

The Graphic Design School has an online Forum that can be accessed through the Schoolyard. This forum is manned by the School’s tutors and Student Support Team (the Support Angels). You will find many questions by current and past students that can help you answer a query, or you can post a question to one of the tutors yourself. You can also give us a call at our head office if you are having any difficulties.

English Language, Literacy And Numeracy Skills

Language, literacy and numeracy skills are critical to almost all areas of work. This is particularly true in graphic design where there is a need to communicate with clients, read and understand design briefs and do research. Our course is delivered in English, so it is assumed that every student will have good English, reading, comprehension, speaking, listening and writing. If you can read and understand the TGDS website and the Student Handbook, that is the level of English needed for this course. You will be asked upon enrolment the level of these skills you possess.

The Graphic Design School will support students during their study with training and assessment materials that are easily understood and suitable to the level of the workplace skills being delivered. We will also provide tutors throughout the course who can answer questions and help through the Schoolyard Support Forum.

Our Expectation Of You

The Graphic Design School expects you:

  • To contribute to learning in a harmonious and positive manner irrespective of gender, race, sexual preference, political affiliation, marital status, disability or religious belief.
  • To comply with the rules and regulations of The Graphic Design School.
  • To be honest and respectful, this includes not falsifying work or information and not communicating in any way that may cause offence to others or The Graphic Design School.
  • To be responsible for your own learning and development by participating actively and positively and by ensuring that you maintain progress with learning modules.
  • To monitor your own progress by ensuring that assessments are submitted in a timely manner.
  • To utilize facilities and The Graphic Design School publications with respect and to honour our copyrights and prevent our publication from being distributed to unauthorised persons.
  • To respect other students and The Graphic Design School staff right to privacy and confidentiality.

We are of the caring, egalitarian, religious and politically neutral variety at The Graphic Design School. You will find your fellow students and the faculty are kind, inquisitive, informative, sometimes humorous and often inspiring. Student support forum discussions are conducted with open and honest communication. We have never had one abusive or rude comment made by a student or staff on the forum, we are very proud of this and find it a rare thing in a forum situation. We are however aware that cyber bullying does exist on the World Wide Web. Discrimination and harassment will not be tolerated under any circumstances by the school.
