If you think you have a SpLD

Initial appointment with Student Health and Wellbeing Service

If you think you may have a Specific Learning Difficulty please come along to the Specialist Learning Team in Student Health and Wellbeing. We can arrange an initial discussion with a Specialist Learning Adviser regarding any areas of difficulty you are experiencing and provide advice about an assessment with a chartered psychologist.

To book an appointment please email specialistlearning@newcastle.ac.uk or telephone (0191) 208 3333.


There is no charge to meet with a Specialist Learning Adviser. There is a cost involved for a psychological assessment and it is the students’ responsibility to pay any costs. You may be able to claim this money back through a subsidy and any support with funding available for assessment will be discussed in appointment with a Specialist Learning Adviser.
