Learning Development Centre

The Learning Development Centre (LDC) welcomes all IADT students who would like to improve their learning skills and reach their academic potential. We specialise in learning development and learning support, providing assessments, consultations and workshops throughout the academic year.

Our Services

Students can avail of seminars, workshops, small groupwork and one-to-one sessions on a range of learning skills, including:

  • academic writing;
  • research and reading strategies;
  • note taking/making;
  • time management and organisation skills;
  • exam techniques and revision planning.

We support students whose learning is impacted by a specific learning difficulty, including:

  • dyslexia;
  • dyscalculia;
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder;
  • Developmental Co-ordination Disorder;
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder.


Once you have registered with Disability Support Services, we can provide needs assessments to identify which supports are most effective for you and your programme of study. Supports may include one-to-one tutoring tailored to individual needs, arrangements for exam accommodations and incorporation of assistive technology into your learning.

  • Email or phone us and we will agree an appointment.
  • Bring in work samples, the piece of work you will be working on, and any other information that you think might be relevant.
  • Remember that we are not a proof reading service, so be prepared to work through drafts, possibly over several appointments.
