What Can Go Into A Disabled Student Toolkit

The right mix of products and knowledge can bridge the gap for a disabled student. But what sort of things make a good disabled student toolkit?

The Essentials

Your Phone

Yes this is obvious but that doesn’t mean you should not include it! Your phone will always be a critical part of your disabled student toolkit. From apps to comms, your phone can do it all!

It is important to remembered however; that your phone can be a useful study tool. From taking pictures of important info to recording audio – don’t forget to use your phone for uni.

A Tablet

Tablets can be cheap and they are very useful. They have very similar functions to your phone but pack a lot more power. From longer battery life to more advance apps, who needs a PC these days?

Tablets are often lighter and more compact – meaning that if you cannot carry that much – go for tablet over a laptop.


Medication management can be a pain. Keeping track of your meds, while you are out and about can be a pain but the stylish Sabi products have you covered. Check them out here.



Nimble is the one finger cutter that makes plastic packaging easier to handle. Check it out here –


If you drool (and many people do) – a stylish bib can make all the difference. You can take it off and on as you please and they wash well.
