Students with other specific learning difficulties, such as dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, or students with other cognitive difficulties, e.g. as a result of brain injury.

If you have a specific learning difficulty, other than dyslexia, or other cognitive difficulties, for example due to brain injury, the Inclusion Co-ordinator, will help facilitate appropriate support and assistance for you.

The following types of help may be available (in some cases subject to funding).

  • Extensions to Library loans
