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 disability@kcl.ac.uk

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.
