What other specific learning difficulties are there?

Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia are common Specific Learning Difficulties.  There are other types of neurodiversity in the HE population. Information about neurodiversity in HE can be obtained from the web at: http://www.brainhe.com/


Staff in the AccessAbility Centre can provide additional information and advice about these Specific Learning Difficulties.  Please note that Meares-Irlen Syndrome is NOT a Specific Learning Difficulty but it does often affect people with dyslexia.  This is why some students may use a coloured overlay or ask for work on a particular colour of paper.
