  • find it difficult to organise yourself and get to classes or work on time
  • struggle to concentrate during lectures or seminars
  • find it hard to communicate with staff or fellow students, so you miss out on important information that can help you study better?

We know that every aspiring engineer can experience these challenges from time to time.

Get a fast-tracked diagnosis

One of the biggest barriers to getting a neurodiverse diagnosis is long wait times, not to mention the cost of private assessments. We'll help you access a fast-tracked diagnosis, so you can get the support you need, sooner.

Understand what a diagnosis means for you

Once you're diagnosed, you can learn access free counselling support to help you take advantage of your unique strengths, as well as better understanding the challenges it may bring.
