LLR Library Services: Students with Disabilities

Welcome to our guide for students that may require additional support.

On this guide you will find information about services, facilities and support that are available to students with disabilities.  All students who are registered with our Disability and Dyslexia Support team are eligible for these services. 

If you have any queries about these or other services, staff can assist you 7 days a week.  To contact us please use either the chat facility on this page or contact us via My Account.

Screening

Do you think you might have Dyslexia or a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD)?

We use an online screening tool called QuickScan to identify indicators of Specific Learning Differences.

The screening identifies whether the difficulties you are experiencing may be associated with a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD).
You will first need to attend one of our SpLD workshops to access QuickScan.

During the workshop you can find out more about the support available for those who have been diagnosed,

as well as the screening process, if you think you may have dyslexia or another SpLD.

Book a place via our booking page (with sessions available both online and in-person)

If indicators of an SpLD are shown, then the Disability and Dyslexia Support (DDS) team will be notified, and a member of the team will contact you.

Contact Disability & Dyslexia Support
