Whether you think you may have dyslexia, have a formal diagnosis, or are looking for further information, the Student Disability Team is here to help.
There’s no reason to think a dyslexia diagnosis will prevent you from studying at degree or postgraduate level. With the right support you can be as successful as any other student.
Dyslexia is a specific learning difference which affects literary skills and information processing. It’s often associated with difficulties with spelling and punctuation, but it also affects organisation and concentration amongst other characteristics. Dyslexia often runs in families and is a lifelong condition. However, people with dyslexia do tend to be creative problem solvers and there are often many positives about the way they think and approach their studies.
In order to get the right support, you need to have a diagnostic assessment carried out by a specialist assessor or educational psychologist. This will be a long document outlining the strengths and weaknesses in your learning profile.
Firstly, if you suspect you have dyslexia or you’ve been screened before then please register with us and complete our screening form. This isn’t a diagnosis, but it provides a guide so we can recommend your next steps.
I am so thankful for the dyslexia support sessions I had as they gave me the motivation to continue with my studies and achieve the grade I wanted.DorisChrist Church Graduate
