Welcome to the 20th Anniversary of NADP edition of the Journal

Most of the papers in this edition are from the 20th Anniversary Conference held in June 2019. I wonder if the original group who got together to set up NADO [as it then was] would have imagined their gathering growing to such a large and successful organisation!  We have over 1400 members and count almost all universities in our membership as well as a good number of colleges and independent members.

NADP has great plans for the future even though the profession faces challenges from a seemingly never-ending stream of tinkering with the Disabled Student Allowances scheme.  As I write this, everything is technically on hold as the election looms, but I am also responding to a consultation by the Welsh Government on their proposed changes to the DSAs.

Despite this, NADP is re-establishing its individual accreditation scheme to raise further the professionalism of our members; we are embarking on a programme of training days for both established and newer members. We also intend to introduce some training specifically for FE colleges.

This edition of the journal contains both conference papers and submitted papers across a range of topics from understanding autism to increasing employment prospects for disabled students. Two papers result from high level research projects.  We also have a review of a book [or perhaps more of a compendium] offering advice across a wide range of topics for disabled students.

I commend these papers as interesting and highly informative; I also encourage readers to consider writing their own tips, best practice, work experiences, research results, summaries of their MA or PhD, or reflections on their conference presentation/workshop.  We are ready to receive papers at any time of the year, for inclusion in the following edition.
