Dyslexia affects around 10% of the population and is often hereditary. Dyslexia affects the way individuals process, store and retrieve information. Students with dyslexia may experience difficulties with memory, organisation, time-management, sequencing, reading and writing.
If you think that you may have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, then the university's Disability Support service can offer a diagnostic assessment.
To organise a diagnostic assessment:
1. Request a screening questionnaire by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Complete the questionnaire and return it to Disability Support.
3. A Learning Support Coordinator will review your questionnaire responses and contact you to either:
- Offer an appointment to discuss your concerns in more detail, or
- Refer you directly for a full diagnostic assessment.
