Learning Disability Support

Support Services - Dyslexia

We offer individually tailored support to students with a range of learning disabilities including Specific Learning Difficulty (Dyslexia), Dyspraxia and Aspergers (Autistic Spectrum).

Our aim is to ensure that support is in place when you arrive at University. We are therefore happy to provide information and guidance before you complete your application via email or at a University Open Day.  Advice and support is available to students from application to graduation.

Our Learning Disability Counselor, Mrs Siobhan McNiff, is responsible for:

  • Coordinating with Admissions/ Student Office and lecturers about special needs and disabilities support for students
  • Arranging for individualised and customised support for students with special needs
  • Assisting the Head of CAS with the dissemination of skills based sessions

Subject to appropriate evidence, support might include, for example, sheltered exam arrangements, 1:1 weekly sessions designed to boost your study skills and foster independent learning and liaison with academic teams about reasonable adjustments.

The Learning Disability Counselor is located in the CAS office (Room 307, Block 16) and can be contacted by email to s.mcniff@mdx.ac.ae.
