Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) screening
If you've never been assessed for a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) but sometimes struggle with academic work, the SpLD screening can potentially identify areas of support.
What happens during a SpLD/Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) screening?
- You will receive advice and guidance from a specialist tutor, either face to face or over the phone.
- The screening won't result in a diagnosis.
- The specialist tutor may undertake a series of checklists with you.
- The screening will take up to one hour.
You can bring someone with you for moral support, but they will need to wait outside the assessment room.
What should I bring?
- Bring any previous information concerning study skills support and/or examination access arrangements.
- Take prescription glasses, if you wear them for reading.
How much does a screening cost?
- Screenings are free.
What happens after the screening?
- We offer advice and guidance on the next steps you can take.
- A diagnostic assessment may be recommended.
- Whatever our recommendations, what you do next will always remain your choice.
- If you do undertake a diagnostic assessment, this does not necessarily mean that you will be found to have a SpLD or ADHD.
If the screener identifies any traits, your options will be discussed at the end of your screening.
I received support and extra time at school, should I attend a screening?
