Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Support – SpLD
Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Support is individual support for students diagnosed with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD), which may include Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Dyscalculia, in addition to other possible disabilities.
Study Skills Tutors will support students with the issues they might have in acquiring, recalling and retaining information in written and spoken language.
Tutors will also provide support with a range of memory, organisational, attention and numeracy difficulties that students with specific learning difficulties (SpLD) or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often face when in further and/or higher education.
Using a range of multi-sensory strategies to facilitate independent learning, our highly specialist tutors will deliver individual study skills tuition and support students to identify their own learning styles and strengths. Students will be supported with their literacy in the areas of spelling, punctuation, grammar and accuracy of thought presentation.
Independent learning is promoted as well as empowering the student to manage their workload. Whilst study skills cannot be subject specific, our tutors can work with students using course materials as a framework.

- time management and organisational skills

- note taking from texts, hand-outs and in lectures
- research skills
