Some students will not discover that they have a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD) such as dyslexia until they reach University.
The characteristic difficulties associated with dyslexia and other SpLDs and their effects on learning are identified on this page. Further information can be obtained by clicking on the links on the right-hand side of the page.
If you think that you may be dyslexic, or have another specific learning difference, then you should:
- Inform your Personal Tutor
- Contact Disability Services for an appointment to discuss the difficulties you are experiencing and do a screening test to identify what may be the cause of these difficulties
What happens next:
If the screening test indicates an SpLD, then you will be advised to have a full diagnostic test by an Educational Psychologist or other qualified professional. Students are referred externally for the full diagnostic assessment by an independent professional.
The full diagnostic assessment usually will take approximately 2 hours to complete and the cost can vary between £230-£450. Students can apply to the Warwick Harship Fund (WHF) for financial help to pay for this assessment.
Application forms for the Warwick Harship Fund are available from the Student Funding Office at Senate House. If you have any enquiries about the Warwick Harship Fund please contact Student Funding at firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 024 7615 0096, internal extension 50096.
