Required documentation:

In order to receive support from the University of Brescia, you will need to present documentation certifying a specific learning disorder situation (SLD) pursuant to L. 170/2010 in Esse3 and you will be asked to fill in a privacy policy and the Declaration in lieu of the Self Declaration Affidavit.

Based on the type of difficulty they entail, the Specific Learning Disorders, recognized and protected by Law 170/2010, are divided into:

  • ICD-10: F81.0 - DYSLEXIA: specific reading disorder manifested by a difficulty in decoding texts.
  • ICD-10: F81.1 – ORTOGRAPHIC DYSLEXIA: specific writing disorder that manifests itself with difficulty in spelling and phonographic competence.
  • ICD-10: F81.2 - DYSCALCULIA: specific disorder relating to the ability of using numbers and calculations that manifests itself with a difficulty in understanding and working with numbers.
  • ICD-10: F81.8 - DYSGRAPHIA: specific disorder of handwriting which manifests itself with a difficulty in the motor ability of writing.

In the case of Specific Learning Disorders, as established by L. 170/2010 (art. 3) and the subsequent Accordo Stato Regioni del 25/7/2012, it is necessary to produce suitable updated diagnostic certification, including neurological examination and neuropsychological tests, issued no more than 3 years ago by structures of the Italian National Healthcare System or by structures and specialists accredited by this institution.

Note: The PDP (Personalized Didactic Plan) drawn up by the high school of origin is not valid for the purpose of evaluating and supplying supports during the time at the university and during the admission examinations.
