Specific Learning Differences FAQ

We are committed to providing a supportive and proactive service for our students who have a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD). 

A SpLD is a difference in the way we learn and process information. Each person with a SpLD has a unique combination of strengths and challenges.  

Individuals with an SpLD can have significant compensatory strengths which complement higher-level study. Conversely, the challenges experienced may impact learning, study and engagement.  


The most common SpLDs are: 

·         Dyslexia 

·         Dyspraxia 

·         Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder 


Sometimes, an individual’s profile of learning does not fit neatly into any of these diagnostic categories. Also, some individuals may experience more than one SpLD. 

Please get in touch with us if you either have a diagnosed SpLD, or if you think you may have a learning difference which has not yet been investigated. You can contact the SpLD Team by clicking here
