Learning Disability Support

Support Services - Dyslexia

The CAS team offers 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 from the moment students arrive at University. We are happy to provide information and guidance before students complete their application via email or at a University Open Day. Advice and support is available to students from application to graduation.

Our Learning Disability Counselor, 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 dissemination of skills based sessions

Support may include sheltered exam arrangements, one-on-one weekly sessions designed to boost the student’s study skills, and foster independent learning and liaison with academic teams about reasonable adjustments.
