5.3c Students with dyslexia/neurodiversity

If a student discloses that they have dyslexia, dyspraxia or any other neurodiverse condition, departments need to take the steps outlined in earlier parts of this section. The most obvious impact of dyslexia is likely to be on a student’s written work. However, they may also have problems with managing their course workload, time management and meeting deadlines. It is worth keeping these points in mind when writing comments on the student’s LSE for You record.

The Disability and Wellbeing Service can provide various adjustments, including specialist tutorial support, for students with dyslexia. UK students may also benefit from a Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).

Sensitivity is essential as students are often self-conscious.
