Subject: G+LD+ADHD: looking for Specificly trained assesors/psy (UK)
(Unfortunately, research in France is still very limited so I would probably find something in the UK.) Following unfruitful investigations with UK/Fr organisations (Skill, Dfes, BDA, etc) I am contacting you for guidance should you have some time to provide such information. France is even less advanced than the UK, the UK than the US.
I have been diagnotised by a NNAC centre with 'borderline dyslexia' and currently read HE degree in the UK as a freshly mature EU student (i.e. not eligible for the DSA).
From my own reflection of personal life+schooling experience during my last decade (from 'very brillant' to faillures), and for what I have understood in research papers on this topic (principaly from North-America), I found that my weaknesses/strenghts/& symptoms I manifested until then correspond with G/LD (giftedness & learning disability/dyslexia).
In my university, learning support services are efficient for physically impared students but are still (in my opinion and for other student-users I talked with) too generic and limited in terms of diagnosis, no financial support and/or reduction of cost for EU based students, and limited and inequitable (in line with what DSA can provide to the university through Home students high allowances, i.e: high costs since there are high allowances.... In comparison, Dyslexia Action provides less expensive services with no particularly different tools). After failing twice at university, I have been permited to retake my year in 2010, however, and after having sent a request, I have not been permited for any further consideration for appropriate support.
Should you have some information/contacts in the UK, my questions are the following:
Thank you very much for your time and patience,
