A Specialist Mentor is like having someone who has a ‘torch’ to help you keep on track with your studies, while helping you to find your own ‘torch’. They will work with you to help you recognise the barriers to learning created by your impairment and support you in developing strategies to address these barriers.
The support could include:
- Coping with anxiety and stress situations
- How to deal with concentration difficulties
- Time management, prioritising workload
- Creating a suitable work-life balance
