Your assessment report will be e-mailed to you giving full details of the diagnosis and recommendations for support. You should then book a feedback appointment with a Disability Advisor to discuss the findings and the recommendations. 

If you arrange your own assessment report, you should ensure a copy of this is given to the Disability Advisory Service.

If a specific learning difficulty is confirmed:

An Advisor will discuss all support options available, including:

  • Extra time on library loans
  • Inclusive technology use and training
  • Applying for examination arrangements
  • Access to specialist study skills tutorials

Specialist study skills tutorials

These tutorials are arranged at a time to suit you outside your class time. However, this scheduling is dependent on staff availability. The content is negotiated with you but is led by our team of experienced dyslexia/SpLD tutors. They will train you to understand how you learn best considering your strengths and weaknesses. Sessions are not limited in number, but they are reviewed and evaluated periodically. The aim is to develop study efficiency through independence. 

If a specific learning difficulty is not identified at your assessment

If your assessor does not identify a specific learning difficulty, the report will still give you a great deal of information about your best way of learning. An Advisor will discuss the report with you and can suggest ways to improve your study efficiency in the light of its conclusions.  An Advisor may also be able to suggest other appropriate support such as accessing the inclusive technologies in the software hub or attending other study skills sessions run by the college.
