Anyone involved in admissions and support services will have noticed the changing admissions landscape with increasing numbers of applications coming from students with additional learning needs, either EAL or Learning Support. From her dual perspective as a learning support specialist who has also been a Director of Admissions, Sandra Helmig will explore ways to enable Admissions Offices to be able to acquire the relevant information those schools with an inclusive mission need in order to make 'best fit' admissions decisions.
