Assessment for Specific Learning Difference (dyslexia, dyspraxia, AD[H]D)


At Loughborough University we can arrange for you to undertake an assessment by our educational psychologist.

Please contact studysupport@lboro.ac.uk for more details.

Private Assessment

If you are unable to have an Educational Psychologist Assessment through the University you may wish to have one done privately.

If you do have an assessment done privately please remember to forward a copy to the Disability Office so that we can put support in place.

Please note private assessments may cost between £300 and £600. 

Dyscalculia Screening and Assessment

Some students experience severe difficulties with numbers and maths. If you wish to discuss this further please contact the Study Support Service.

After your Educational Psychologist Assessment

After your Educational Psychologist assessment you will be invited to make an appointment to talk over your assessment with the Neurodiversity Support Adviser. This is a chance to ask any questions about your assessment and discuss your support options.  You will also be given advice about applying for Disabled Students Allowance

If you are found not to have a specific learning difference we will discuss what support the University can offer, and where you might go for additional advice to address your issues.

Final Year, 1-year courses and Art Foundation

Final year and 1-year course students must be on the waiting list by the end of the first term for the assessment to be completed by the end of the first semester.

For Art Foundation students support is available through Jackie Hatfield who will complete a screener as appropriate.

Summer Closure

Please note this service is closed over the summer and re-opens Monday 24th September 2018.

Emails over the summer will be kept and replied to from that date.
