Think you may have dyslexia?

You may find you are experiencing difficulties with your studies that lead you to think that you may have dyslexia. You are welcome to seek our help.

Dyslexia assessment

Please request a screening form by calling in to Student Support Reception (Bedford campus) or by logging a SiD enquiry (other campuses) at the SiD Helpdesk or online

Alternatively you can ask for a form by contacting us on disability@beds.ac.uk

  • We will give you or send you a form to fill out that includes a handwriting exercise.
  • Read the instructions and the accompanying leaflet carefully before you complete the form.
  • You will be offered an appointment with an advisor once you have completed the form and returned it to Student Support Reception (Bedford campus) or a SiD Helpdesk
  • During the appointment, your form will be reviewed and you and the advisor will discuss your challenges further.
  • You may be asked to complete additional screening tasks.
  • If the advisor determines that there are strong indicators of dyslexia, you will be offered a full Diagnostic Assessment.
  • You will be asked to part-fund this assessment (£100). The University pays the balance of the cost.
  • A Diagnostic Assessment Report, with a diagnosis of dyslexia, provides the evidence - PDF 210.2 KB for your application for Disabled Students' Allowance
  • Whatever the outcome of the screening process, your advisor will discuss your study support options with you.

    The screening service is for registered students only.
