Dyslexia / Dyspraxia
If QuickScan has identified dyslexia or dyspraxia indicators we recommend that you arrange a diagnostic assessment with an Educational Psychologist.
The cost of a diagnostic assessment is around £300, the University may be able to pay for this; if eligible for this funding, you will be asked to contribute £50 to the total cost.
Please note: Funding for a diagnostic assessment is only available to students who are studying at a course intensity of at least 25% of the full time equivalent course. If you have any questions regarding eligibility, please contact Disability Advice.
The process of arranging a diagnostic assessment and any support that you might need while studying can take up to 12 weeks so please apply early.
To apply for funding, arrange a diagnostic assessment, or discuss reasonable adjustments
Please contact the Disability Advice team:

Please note: QuickScan does not give a diagnosis of a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD): it only indicates if a further diagnostic assessment is recommended. Reasonable adjustments cannot be provided based on the results of QuickScan, nor can you use a QuickScan report as evidence that you have a disability or Specific Learning Difficulty.
