Formal diagnostic assessments are offered (when recommended following a SpLD screening). These are with one of our Specialist SpLD Assessors, who are fully qualified professionals and are contracted by University of Roehampton specifically to carry out assessments for SpLD.
In the assessment you will be asked questions, similar to the ones in the SpLD Screening, and you will be required to do a variety of different tasks to identify whether you have a SpLD.
The Assessor will give you verbal feedback during the meeting and then they will write up a comprehensive Diagnostic Assessment Report. This will be sent to you electronically by the university within 10 working days.
If you would like the details contained in the report explained to you or support in applying for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) (where eligible), you can book a follow-up appointment with the Disability & Dyslexia Service.
