Dyslexia diagnosis and support

If you need support for dyslexia or think you might have dyslexia, or another learning difficulty such as dyspraxia or dyscalculia. 

Finding out if you have dyslexia

Think you might have dyslexia or another learning difficulty? The Learning Support Service offers a screening service to establish whether you have a learning difficulty and what support might suit you.

If you feel this support might benefit you, the Learning Support Team should be your first port of call.
