Services for universities and colleges
Our assessments and reports comply fully with the DfES Guidelines for Assessment of Specific Learning Difficulties in Higher Education.
Our reports are used by students in their application for the DSA Equipment grant and by Universities for extra time (if needed, with use of computer or other aids) in examinations and for planning learning support.
Two+ copies of the report are provided. The student has a copy in a presentation folder, printed on slightly tinted paper to aid reading, and an additional plain white copy either on paper or electronic (non - modifiable).
The University / College has the option of a plain white copy either on paper or electronic (non - modifiable).
Our assessment reports are written individually; in this way, we have the flexibility to tailor them to the needs of each student and the University or College. We do not use computer - based scoring. The assessment reports offer each student an opportunity to gain a better understanding of their learning profile and of their strengths and weaknesses.
We will work with you to tailor our services to your needs. For example, some universities do extensive screening tests before referring a student to us. Some do just a short interview before referral. Some universities and colleges have trained learning support tutors; some do not. We are not a one size fits all organization - we are flexible in terms of what we offer, so as to meet the needs of the student and the institution, within the parameters of Disability Rights legislation.
The Psychologists at psychology4education all have experience of working with students for whom English is an additional language. Even where a student does not meet the current criteria for specific learning difficulty, we offer guidance to enable the student to realize their academic potential."We have used the team for several years and during this time they have consistently demonstrated a friendly, supportive approach to the student which has made the assessment process a positive experience. Their service is reliable, efficient and the accessibility of the written reports is appreciated."
