Teaching with a disabliity

From an email discussion forum in reply to 

One of the participants on our PGCert has asked about any resources about teaching for those with disabilities/ health issues as she has disabilities and long-term health issues.


On our course we talk a lot about students with disabilities but we don't really address it so much from the staff side of things. We also have all the usual stuff from HR but nothing specifically about teaching.
Does anyone know of anything useful I could point her towards?

There is a book she can download for free on ableism in academia  https://policy.bristoluniversitypress.co.uk/lived-experiences-of-ableism-in-academia and another coming out soon from Policy Press edited by Nicole Brown 

One link was erroneous.

Ableism in Academia. Theorising Experiences of Disabilities and Chronic Illnesses in Higher Education is free to down from here: https://www.uclpress.co.uk/products/123203 or https://www.jstor.org/stable/j.ctv13xprjr

Both make recommendations that she and her line managers may find useful, as may you.

I have also written about teaching with dyslexia and supporting teachers with dyslexia here https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/14703297.2020.1764377?journalCode=riie20
