The University of Manchester welcomes students with additional support needs arising from a specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, an unseen medical condition, a mental health difficulty or a disability or impairment. The University has a central Disability Advisory and Support Service (DASS) which can offer confidential advice and organise support. In order to access the full support that the University can offer, you should contact the DASS to discuss your support requirements, either by


*   http://www.dass.manchester.ac.uk/

*   email (dass@manchester.ac.uk)

*   telephone (0161 275 7512/ 8518)

*   by visiting the DASS office located on the 2nd Floor of University Place, Block 2. (Building 37 on the campus map) where you can speak in confidence to a Disability Adviser about your needs.

If you are a student with support needs and have not yet informed DASS, then please contact them in the first instance. In addition to this, each Faculty and School has a Disability Coordinator, who liaises with the DSO to organise support in the School.  Stephanie Keegan in the Teaching and Learning Office is the disability coordinator for the School of Mathematics.

DASS can also organise screening tests for students who think that they might have dyslexia.
