for university and college students

We work with universities and colleges across the UK to provide diagnostic assessments to identify students' learning needs and to support DSA applications. 

This remote diagnostic assessment is primarily for students who require evidence of a specific learning difficulty for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) applications and exam concessions (e.g. extra time in exams) for undergraduate and postgraduate study.


The assessment is SASC (The Specific Learning Difficulties Assessment Standards Committee) compliant and identifies the four specific learning difficulties recognised by SASC: dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and ADHD.

Assessments take place online via video conferencing and can be booked and funded either by students or by institutions.

What is the process?

Before an assessment, we gather background information from the student via an online questionnaire.


During the assessment, we complete selected diagnostic tests and immediately after the assessment, we give brief, verbal feedback about the findings.


Two weeks later, we issue an assessment report containing the findings and recommendations.

What are the limitations?


Conditions other than the four listed previously cannot be identified via this assessment. If an assessment with broader scope is required, please see our Adults page for information about our full educational psychology assessments.

For school or college students studying GCSEs or A levels, it is a requirement of the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) that we have an existing relationship with the student's institution. Please contact us for more information about this.
