Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, we are unable to carry out any tests or assessments face to face. However, we can provide some services remotely.
If you feel you may have a specific learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, or ADHD, we can provide a preliminary screening via email questionnaire. Once this is complete, we will discuss with you the next steps for support which you may require.
The screening questionnaire is free of charge to current and prospective Bangor University students.
To request one of these, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bangor University Staff should enquire about their support needs through Miles Dyslexia Unit on email@example.com
ADHD / Attentional Difficulties
With our assessments at Bangor, we are able to diagnose ADD/ADHD for study purposes. This format is widely recognised in the UK and students are advised that if they would prefer to get a medical diagnosis they can do so via GP referral. Our full assessment covers all specific learning differences including ADHD.
If you are interested in investigating further, please request an informal screening as outlined above.
The University does not offer autism screening or assessment - this is only available via the NHS or privately. Click here for more information on Autism Assessments.
Full assessment / Assessment Fee
If you have previous had additional exam arrangements due to Dyslexia / Dyspraxia etc. and you would like a full assessment, the Assessment Centre is able to offer students a diagnostic service to determine if you have a Specific Learning Difference such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia. The university pays part of the fee, however a student contribution of £100 is also required.
We carry out assessments for students at Bangor University only. For information on services for external students please see: dyslexia.bangor.ac.uk/assessment

- All our assessors are qualified to recommend, if appropriate, whether a student should be eligible to apply for the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA)
The full assessment can take around 3-4 hours.
Applying for DSA
We support any Bangor University student with their application for DSA. This includes support with completing the application form, liaising with Student Records and being able to answer most questions you may have with regards to the DSA process.
We will also save a copy of the form in case it gets lost in the post.
