You can receive voluntary support as long as you are an active student, i.e. you attend classes regularly (either in person or remotely), you participate in laboratory or clinical work, you submit assignments, you study and take exams.
In order to join the voluntary support program you must:
- have submitted the Student’s Activity and Participation Restrictions’ Registration Form (ReF),
- have submitted to the Accessibility Unit a recent thorough diagnosis certificate issued by an official/state entity or healthcare provider. The diagnosed disability/severe disease/other condition must justify the services you are applying for. It must also certify that you do not suffer from any psychological disorder which could result in potentially dangerous behavior for the physical integrity of yourself as well as of others, such as suicidal tendencies, use of substances, uncontrollable temper tantrums, impulsivity etc. (Instead of a formal certificate you can submit a signed Official Statement stating that you do not suffer from any psychological disorder; this is required only in case you are applying for voluntary support that involves personal contact with volunteers),
- have participated at least once in an introductory meeting with a staff member of the ASVS,
- have met at least once with the Counseling Professor of your Department/Faculty in order to confer with him/her about the limitations and restrictions you face when you attend classes, study and sit for an exam; you should have reached an agreement regarding the accommodations to be applied. You should inform the Counseling Professor about the classes you are going to attend every semester.
- have understood and accepted the rules and procedures followed by the Accessibility Unit and have signed the Acceptance Statement of the Terms of participation in the voluntary support program. You must send feedback to the ASVS systematically (cf. Collaboration Journal) and fill in the Evaluations Form at the end of every semester.
