Dyslexia Many of the students we support are dyslexic and we are well equipped to provide dyslexia support. If you think you may have dyslexia, we can offer you an appointment for dyslexia screening. This will give you an opportunity to discover whether the issues you are encountering are dyslexic in nature. A full diagnostic assessment can then be arranged within four weeks. Funding for this may be available through the Student Success Fund. Once we have received a copy of your diagnostic assessment we can arrange support (readers, study support or dyslexia tuition). d/Deaf/Hearing Impairment In addition to the recommendation from your Assessment Centre report: If you are d/Deaf or have a hearing impairment we can refer you for specialist support (BSL, English interpreters, language support). Blind/Visual Impairment In addition to the recommendation from your Assessment Centre report: If you are blind or have a visual impairment we can refer you for specialist support. Specialist Student Support All information about students is treated in a confidential manner under data protection law. We treat any information you give us with respect and it is only made available to others if you have given specific consent or there are exceptional circumstances. . We can arrange supported access to other services within the University, Students' Union and the local area such as self help groups and representative organisations to ensure that your needs are being met. We aim to treat you as an individual, not as a diagnosis. General Arrangements A member of staff from the Student Inclusion Team or wider Student Support will be available to give advice during all of the University's published General Open Days. In addition, an appointment can be made for an adviser to attend all other Open Days and events as requested. We have an extensive referral system that we can call on to further enhance your support and ensure your individual needs are met. We work closely with Schools and other University Services to provide a support infrastructure that enhances and underpins the Higher Education experience of our students.
