I believe that as a HEI, they are to provide reasonable accomodation to ease access to sevices and support provided for PWD. In on of the instituion in Fiji, they offer financial support for PWD to study but cannot support for their carer, however they opted for a buddy privided by the university to help that student in their study. For a PWD, their carer is picked by the person and not by anyone and their relationship has been built over time. I would suggest that PWD be called to participate at the discussion table for any issues concerning them and to be part of the working group or task force and not to be called onky to validate. I strongly believe in “nothing about us, without us”.
