What we offer
Students with a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, are likely to be offered specialist study skills support through the Disabled Students’ Allowances DSA scheme.
We can advise about applying for this and arranging the support.
King’s Disability Support also has a small team of Specialist Learning Support Tutors who provide learning support sessions to students not eligible for Disabled Students’ Allowances.
To arrange these sessions students will need a referral from a Disability Adviser.
