Awareness Session – How is life with a visual impairment? CANCELED

Due to a limited amount of registrations, this workshop is canceled.

In this awareness session you will be able to experience a visual impairment. In collaboration with the organization Accessibility you can explore and experience what works well in making the world more visible and what does not. You will be able to meet and talk to Francis, a visually impaired mother.  Maybe you will find a deeper understanding of what things you can do, on campus and in your coming field of work. Guus Janssen, expert on accessibility for visually impaired persons, will also join the session to answer all your questions regarding the possible technical aspects of making the world more visible, feelable and understandable.

In collaboration with the organisation Accesibility.

Wed 22/03 – 14:00-15:00 – Collegezaal A (aula)
Inspirational Talk – AD(H)D and the Gender Research Gap

“Sit down! Stop being so ADHD.”
“Sorry, I’m a little ADHD today. I really can’t concentrate on the lecture.”
“I think we all have trouble focusing sometimes, you just need to try harder.”

Sentences everyone has probably heard before; whether you have ADHD or not. The term ADHD is thrown around in our daily lives, but how many people actually know what it is? “I thought ADHD is something only young hyperactive boys get?” And that is the problem.

Eveline van Eerd has a Masters in European Public Health as well as Behavioral Psychology and she was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 21. During this activity she will talk about AD(H)D in women, the biases within the diagnostic process, and the big gender research gap in neurodiversity research.

Wed 22/03 – 16:00-17:30 – Aula
Workshop – Building Accesibility Scan

Is the building of your educational institution or internship company designed in an accessible way? Is the signage visible and readable? Are the classrooms for every student comfortable to sit; can they view the presentation and are they able to concentrate without too much noise from the outside?

There are several factors that can influence your study performance and accessibility is one of them. The problems experienced with regards to reachability or physical accessibility can have various causes. For example; when you are not very mobile due to a chronic illness or physical disability, you may experience obstacles. Maybe you cannot enter the building with a wheelchair, there might be no elevator or there is no parking close by.

With this workshop you walk through the Aula of TU Delft guided by Student Onbeperkt. They will show you what people with disabilities could encounter. Join now this fun and educational Building Accessibility Scan where your helpful comments will be taken into account in the making of an accessibility report about this building.

Join Student Onbeperkt on this valuable and fun activity.
