Disability & Dyslexia Support


Let's break down barriers to your studies

Disability & Dyslexia Support (DDS) is a dedicated service for students who have a disability, mental health condition, medical condition or specific learning difficulties (including dyslexia).

DDS provide advice on available support and will help coordinate your support to ensure that there are no barriers to your learning, enabling you to get the most out of your time at LSBU. 

We understand that every student is different and that each person’s disability can affect them in different ways. By discussing your needs and tailoring an individual support plan, we aim to help you achieve the success you’re capable of.

If you want to declare a disability, discuss the support that might be available to you, or just find out a little more, you can call us 0207 815 6454, email us at disability@lsbu.ac.ukor come and find us at the Student Life Centre helpdesk in the Student Centre.
