Examples of reasonable adjustments

The adjustments listed in the next few pages are examples of potential reasonable adjustments organisations could make for disabled learners. These are not exhaustive, and are not examples that are automatically considered reasonable by us, as this can only be decided on a case by case basis.

It is a matter for each organisation to decide whether they consider a request for an adjustment reasonable, which will always depend on the individual person and their circumstances. In order to do this, organisations must exercise judgment and balance a range of factors. This may be made easier by consulting the disabled person about their needs. You can find more information and guidance in Welcomed and valued: Key things to know about reasonable adjustments.

Medical schools and postgraduate training organisations could keep a record of reasonable adjustments they've made and the costs involved, so that they can share their experiences.
