Introducing the Disability Liaison Officer 

Michelle Winslow - DLO


I’m Michelle Winslow and I’m the Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) for the School of Nursing and Midwifery. All academic departments have a DLO as a source of help for students with disabilities or specific learning difficulties and I can be contacted if you have a question or concern, particularly if related to departmental support or processes.

I work closely with the University of Sheffield's Disability and Dyslexia Support Service (DDSS). If you have an impairment or condition that can make it difficult for you to undertake study-related tasks like sitting exams, reading, planning and writing assignments, attending classes, taking notes or delivering presentations, then you are likely to be eligible for disability support. If any of this sounds like you, and you have not already done so, contact DDSS and make an appointment to speak with an adviser. The Disability and Dyslexia Support Service is on the ground floor of the Alfred Denny Building, you can call them on 0114 222 1303 or email

You’re also very welcome to talk to me, you can get in touch via email or phone or stop me for a chat if you see me around.
