Some neurodiverse students will not identify Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs) such as dyslexia in their learning profile until they reach University.
You can find more information about SpLDs on this page.
If you are experiencing any difficulties that you think are having an impact on your studies you should:
- Inform your Personal Tutor
- Contact the Disability Team for an appointment to discuss the difficulties you are experiencing and go through a screening to discuss any impact and options.
If following a screening there are sufficient indications of an SpLD, then you will be advised of the option of having a full diagnostic assessment by a qualified professional holding an assessor practicing certificate. We provide students with a list external professionals locally who can carry out assessments.
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 Hardship Fund for financial help to pay for this assessment.
There is information about hardship funds and contact details at the Student Funding webpages.
