Service for students with disabilities and with SLD

Saint Louis offers a Service for students with disabilities and with SLD in order to promote the most flexible learning and evaluation methods possible, able to guarantee full learning in terms of knowledge and skills.

The services and activities of the SLD service comply with the provisions of Law 170/2010, the guidelines for the right to study of students with specific learning disabilities of the Ministry of Education, the CNUDD guidelines.

In particular:

  • Law No. 170 of 2010
  • Guide Law 12 July 2011
  • State/Regions Agreement 24 July 2012
  • CNUDD – Guidelines

With this in mind, we promote the adoption of specific compensatory and dispensative measures for students with DSA. These measures support teaching activities and facilitate exams, in line with their educational objectives and characteristics. All the activities proposed are of an educational nature, aimed at autonomy in the study and at autonomous use of compensatory instruments.

We prepare all necessary actions to ensure: reception, administrative counseling, specific mentoring for educational activities, incoming and outgoing orientation mediation with teachers, individual didactic consultancy meetings, counseling meetings for orientation and facilitation.

You can set up a meeting with the SLD/Disability Service to better plan your entry to pre-academic and academic courses, to verify the certification and get the necessary information about the procedures, the times of pre-enrollment and the tools and supports you can benefit from.

In order to have access to the services and support measures for the right to study, it is necessary to produce suitable documentations in course of validity. The student must present the SLD certification according to the legislation in force at regional level; in the case of Lazio it is possible to submit only certifications issued by the STRUCTURES of the NHS.

The date of issuance must not exceed 3 years, at the moment of enrollment. Saint Louis considers, however, diagnoses issued on or after January 1st, 2018, to be valid for A.Y. 2021-2022.

The certification issued after the age of 18 is valid regardless of the date reported (as indicated by the Miur in the guidelines for DSAs).

If the Saint Louis SLD/Disability Service does not consider the diagnosis valid, the student might be invited to request an updated one. In case of suspected presence of SLD, self-reported by the student or reported by a teacher, the Service may proceed in the same way.
