Unsure if you have a Specific Learning Difference?
If you have never been assessed for specific learning differences (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADHD), we would usually suggest that you first complete a free initial online screening using the Do-It Profiler.
On completion of a series of questions and tasks, the Do-It-Profiler gives you a personalised report. Although it does not identify specific learning differences, the tool gives you information and resources, along with guidance to help you decide if you want a formal assessment. The Do-It-Profiler is not an exam - you cannot pass or fail it.
To request the information and link please email email@example.com
- Do-It Profiler Results Guidance document to help you understand your results and consider next steps. Available here to download.
- A step by step guide to arranging a formal diagnostic assessment (including examples of assessment providers and how to apply for means-tested help with assessment costs too, where applicable). Available here to download.
Once you have completed the Do-It-Profiler, if you are still unsure of your next steps, you can book on to one of our Wednesday afternoon workshops. The booking portal can be accessed via StudentLife. Disability Support Services do need to give you access to the events but this will be done automatically within seven days of you having completed the Do-It Profiler.
