The Disability and Dyslexia Service
The Disability and Dyslexia Service offers a confidential service to students, applicants and enquirers with disabilities and dyslexia. We support individuals with physical and sensory impairments, health conditions, dyslexia or learning differences, and those with short or long-term support needs.
We understand that some people with dyslexia or a health condition may not regard themselves as disabled. However, it is important that you are aware of the support available and possible entitlements so that you can make an informed choice.
The Service also offers guidance to University staff on equality and accessibility issues, and meeting the needs of individuals.
The support we offer includes:
- Negotiation of a package of support for each student according to their specific requirements.
- Assistance with setting up examination provision for students who may need extra time, readers and/or scribes, rest breaks, etc.
- Advice and practical help in applying for Disabled Students' Allowance, if appropriate.
- Short term loan of equipment.
- Enabling Technology Training.
- Workshops and individual tuition with the University's Learning Support/Dyslexia Tutor.
- Screening and psychological assessments for dyslexia and specific learning differences.
- Liaison with other agencies who can provide the assistance students might need, for example, personal assistance, mobility training, etc.
- Help with recruiting support workers such as note takers.
