October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

Scott Seldon, Disability Service


Do you have a neurodiverse profile like dyslexia and want to understand the support available at USW? 


Or you might want to explore whether some of the challenges you experience academically, or in your personal life, could be due to an unidentified neurodiverse profile. 


Colleagues from the Disability Service will be at our Coffee Morning on 19th October to answer your questions.



Can’t make the event?


If you are a research student who has Dyslexia or another Specific Learning Difficulty, the Disability Service can provide advice and guidance on how to access support and adjustments at University. Please make an appointment with a Disability Adviser to discuss your individual needs. 


If you think that you may have Dyslexia or another Specific Learning Difficulty, the Disability Service offers free Dyslexia screening and can help to arrange a diagnostic assessment. 


Demand for assessment is high and assessment funding is limited, if you are interested in having an assessment please make an appointment with a Disability Adviser as soon as possible.
