Screening for Specific Learning Difficulties
Screening and Assessment for Specific Learning Difficulties
If you have been diagnosed with a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) or previously received support for your studies at school or college, please get in touch with us. Please ensure you give details of the support you are seeking as well as attaching any supporting evidence.
Many students will have been diagnosed before arriving at university.
However, a number of students with an undiagnosed Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) will find that your difficulties become more apparent when studying at university level and you may benefit from screening or assessment.
You can find out more about booking a diagnostic assessment here.
You can always discuss your situation, in confidence, by making an appointment to speak to one of our advisors.
If you have been advised to have a full diagnostic assessment, or you need an updated report, please see our SpLD assessment info sheet 08.12.22 for details of qualified practitioners locally, and nationwide.
Assessments may cost upwards of £350. However, if paying for an assessment will cause you financial difficulty, there is additional funding available. Please see the links below for further information and advice about financial help:
Exeter's Students' Guild offer all students advice with finances, especially with funding available to them for diagnistic costs.
