Development and Engagement Drop-in
You are encouraged to book a 15-minute session with Rachel Murphy. Rachel is the Graduate Intern for the Trinity Disability Service until June 2023. Rachel has first-hand experience of what it is like to have a disability in higher education. Rachel is particularly interested in the engagement of disabled students with wider campus life, as it is crucial for student development and to explore interests outside of academic work. As such, Rachel would love to speak to you about how you too can develop skills and experience through extracurricular activities as a disabled student in Trinity College. Whether it is getting involved in a sports club, a society, the Student’s Union or becoming a disability advocate outside of college through various activities, Rachel will be able to talk you through what is available to you now as a student of Trinity. The drop-in is held weekly every Friday between 11-1pm and can be booked via the Development and Engagement Drop-in booking calendar.
Occupational therapy is a client centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. Occupational therapists use the term occupation to describe all the things you do as a student, and have an understanding of how disability can possibly affect people's ability to do the day-to-day things that are important for them. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable you to participate in the activities of everyday life as a student.
