Students with disabilities
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.
Students can now provide evidence or complete a screening through MyAccount.
To do this:
If you know you have a specific learning difference you can provide information about this using the first option. This will be sent directly to the DDS team to assess.
If you are unsure if you have a specific learning difference, you can choose the second option to complete an online screening.
Once you have completed a screening, you should check back in the My Tasks section of MyAccount for any further actions needed.
Support arrangements will be automatically added to the system if screening results show indications of dyslexia and/or dyspraxia.
Please note: The QuickScan screening does not identify ADHD indicators, you will need to contact LSBU Dyslexia & Disability Support team.
If you want to declare a disability or discuss the support that might be available to you, contact the LSBU Disability & Dyslexia Support team:Schedule an appointment via MyAccount and select Disability & Dyslexia Team.
or find them at the Student Life Centre help desk in the Student Centre.
