Parents
Additional Support

At Hadlow College we welcome students, whatever their needs. We recognise that each child is unique and, through our dedicated team of professionals, work with them to help them succeed.

Students with additional learning needs are supported in a number of different ways.  These include individual learning sessions, specialised computer packages, in-class support, screening for dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome, providing written materials in different formats and accessing special exam requirements.  Our aim is to make sure, as far as we are able, that your child's learning needs do not prevent them accessing the course of their choice.  

How does the College know that a learning need exists?

The College application form contains a section where we request that prospective students tell us about any additional learning needs they may have.  At the subsequent interview we will invite the prospective student to talk with a member of the Additional Learning Support team so we can put in place the best arrangements to meet your child's needs.  

What needs do you support?

Generally, the needs we support are:

  • English and maths
  • Specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADD and ADHD.
  • Speech, language and communication.
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
  • Visual and hearing impairment.
  • Irlen Syndrome.

In addition, we have a dedicated ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) lecturer and all students are able to access our drop-in sessions and study club.
