Welcome to Dyslexia Skills
Dyslexia Skills provides individual advice and guidance for students who have been identified as having dyslexia. Our team can enable you to maximise the capabilities that working with dyslexia can bring.
The Dyslexia Skills team work closely with ASK: Academic Skills and the Accessibility team to provide a spectrum of support to meet the needs of every individual student. Your journey may begin with contact with any one of our teams.
You might suspect you have dyslexia, but may not be sure
The Dyslexia Skills team will be offering a pre arrival online assessment for new students. This innovative computer software will help you identify your preferred learning style, as well as check for indicators of dyslexia.
In order to claim the Disabled Students' Allowance from your funding body, students with dyslexia need to undertake a diagnostic assessment carried out by a qualified person. This assessment has a cost to the student. In cases of financial hardship, funds may be available through the University's Access to Learning Fund. Please discuss any concerns or outcomes with our team.
