What to do if you do not have a SpLD diagnostic assessment report
There are two options in accessing a full diagnostic assessment:
Enrolled students can request a SpLD Screening to determine whether it would be appropriate to have a diagnostic assessment arranged through the Disability & Dyslexia Service at Roehampton. You will be asked to contribute towards the cost of a full diagnostic assessment (usually £100). Should students require financial assistance with this cost the university offers a Student Hardship Fund, which is means tested.
Please note: The SpLD screening and diagnostic assessment process can take a long time to complete. This will mean that the creation of a Summary of Adjustments (SoA) can be delayed (detailing exam support, extensions to deadlines etc.) and accessing support through Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), where eligible.
You can pay for an independent assessment privately. If you complete this prior to starting your course at university, it may enable you to access support on your course much sooner.
We do not recommend individual assessors, however, you may find some of the following websites useful:
Please note: financial aid through the university cannot be used to fund private assessments.
