ELSA: FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIFIC NEEDS
Students and applicants for study with specific learning disabilities, ADHD, the autistic spectrum disorder, mental disorders or diseases, or with serious chronic diseases, with specific needs arising from their visual, hearing impairment or locomotor disability are entitled to a modification of the course of entrance examinations and a modification of the type of study.
The ELSA Centre provides support to these students and applicants for study. Its staff can be addressed for advice in choosing the right study programme and during the whole study at university.
The ELSA Centre’s offer includes, e.g. testing in the case of suspected learning disorders such as dyslexia or dysgraphia, training of study strategies, ensuring increased time for tests, conversion of study literature into digital files for use by reading software, hiring sign language interpreters for lectures, etc. ELSA also has different technical equipment and special software available that may be borrowed by students with specific needs to make their studies easier.
