If you have not been formally diagnosed, but think you may have a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), there are a number of options open to you:
- Take the QuickScan test
This is an online test in which you answer a series of questions. It takes about 15 minutes and, although it is subjective, can be a useful guide to show if you have indicators for a SpLD. This is not a formal diagnosis, however, and would be insufficient evidence for receiving study-related support. To take the test you will need to be a registered student (as you have to log in via the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment). For more information on how to access the test, please refer to our QuickScan student instructions.
- Speak to a Disability Adviser
You may wish to speak to a Disability Adviser who can discuss your difficulties and family history to best advise you of your options. To book an appointment, please call us on: 01524 592111.
- Assessment with an Educational Psychologist
There are appointments available on campus every week during term-time with professional educational psychologists. These last approximately an hour and a half. As a student, you will be expected to pay 30% towards the cost of this, with the University paying the remaining 70%.
Please note: Failure to attend or cancel with more than 24 hours notice may result in you still being charged.
