Screening and Formal Assessment for Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD

You may find the tasks you need to complete at University more challenging than you had expected, or academic staff may identify issues with your work of which you have previously been unaware. Whatever the case, if you think you may be dyslexic, dyspraxic or have AD(H)D you could attend an Information Session to find out more and meet a member of the Academic Support Team. Or you may decide to use the Do It Profiler to identify useful resources to help you study more effectively.
