Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) support

Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) covers a range of difficulties including:

  • Dyslexia specific difficulties related to spelling, reading and writing.
  • Dyspraxia specific difficulties in physical co-ordination and organisation skills.
  • Dyscalculia specific difficulties in understanding and using numbers.
  • Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) specific difficulties in attention and impulse control

We have a team of tutors and assessors who can help you if you have a specific learning difficulty.

We can support you to develop learning strategies that will help you access and complete your programme of study. We also aim to help students to increase their independence, confidence and self-esteem.
