Also, when I went to one of the uni's they said you needed to be diagnosed for at least a year before they could do anything about it.
Definition of disability
The Equality Act (2010) defines a disabled person as someone who has a mental or physical impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
For the purposes of the Act, these words have the following meanings:
'substantial' means more than minor or trivial
'Long term’ means that an impairment is likely to last for the rest of the person’s life, or has lasted at least 12 months or where the total period for which it lasts is likely to be at least 12 months. If the person no longer has the condition but it is likely to recur, they will be considered to be a disabled person.
'normal day-to-day activities' include everyday things like eating, washing, walking and going shopping
