This paper aims to address some of the concerns of teaching staff in their support for disabled students and, as such, is intended to constitute a good practice guide. It provides information on models of disability and explains the UK legal context, addressing major elements of the Disability Discrimination Act, UK (2005), within the broader international legislative framework. Key questions are included that academic staff may find useful to consider in developing and/or implementing a more inclusive curriculum. Having interpreted curriculum in the widest sense of the word, fifteen aspects have been identified, and each set of questions relating to each aspect is preceded by a mini case study that exemplifies particular dilemmas relating specifically to that particular element of the curriculum. Further support for teaching staff is offered through the inclusion of web references to key online support materials specific to each aspect.
