For dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties (SpLDs)

Screening and support

You may suspect that you’re dyslexic for a number of reasons, such as struggling with the amount of reading expected on your course, feeling unable to organise your time, or having difficulties organising and writing your assignments.

There is support available from our Student Learning team for any academic-related difficulties you may be experiencing. They can provide support with any academic issue and will help you explore a wealth of online materials that can improve everything from note-taking skills, to exam revision, to presentation skills, and much more.

If you access this support but continue to have difficulties, you might suspect that you have a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) such as dyslexia, and may wish to be screened. If would like to arrange for a screening appointment, please print off and complete this form by hand:

SpLD questionnaire

Once completed, please bring it in to the Disability and Dyslexia Support front desk, Tawney Building. Our Disability Advisers will then review your answers and contact you to arrange a screening appointment. If there are indications that you have a learning difficulty, you would then be referred for a comprehensive diagnostic assessment.

We also carry out Needs Assessments as part of the Keele University Outreach Access Centre.
