If you are a student at Liverpool Hope and would like to be assessed for dyslexia (or another specific learning difficulty, such as dyspraxia or dyscalculia) please contact Student Development and Well-being. We recommend that you speak to one of our Learning Support Advisers initially, possibly during a Drop-in Advice session. They can discuss any concerns you may have, give you information about the assessment process and advise you about what support might be available if you are identified as having a specific learning difficulty.
You may wish to complete a Dyslexia Screening Test but be aware that these are not always accurate. The only way to be sure about whether you have a specific learning difficulty is to have a full assessment with an Educational Psychologist or qualified specialist teacher.
If your course is based at Hope Park or the Creative Campus, we can arrange an appointment with a Educational Psychologist at Hope Park to carry out an assessment. There is a cost for this service.
If you have decided that you want to go ahead with an assessment, you can pay your contribution via our online store. Just click on “Product Catalogue”, followed by “Student Development and Well-being”, then “Assessment for Dyslexia” and follow the instructions on the screen.
Students at the Network of Hope colleges should contact their college in the first instance.
The psychologist will usually be able to tell you the outcome straight after the assessment. You will also be sent a full written report. When you receive this, please contact Student Development and Wellbeing again and book an appointment to speak to a Learning Support Adviser.
