Services for Students with Learning Disorders


Sapienza provides a counselling service for didactic support to students with learning disorders and/or neurological development disorders and/or disabilities requiring other special needs. The counselling service provides welcome, orientation, monitoring and support services, as per DM N. 5669/2011 and attached Guidelines and in consideration of the CNUDD Guidelines produced by the National University Conference of Disability Delegates in July 2014.

On the basis of clinical certification produced by the student, counselling psychologists will:

  • Develop and agree with the student on a custom-tailored academic plan;
  • Open an official “learning disability” file;
  • Monitor and update the student’s progress to optimise actions and tools;
  • Develop courses to improve academic abilities.

How to request the Counsegling Service

After enrolling, the counselling service may be requested by:

  • Inserting self-declaration as a student with special needs on your Infostrud Profile;
  • Send an e-mail to: from your university e-mail account. In the e-mail, please indicate:
    • Counselling service request:
    • Student number, faculty and degree programme;
    • Attach national health certification (or one provided by accredited structure)

Please note

- The special needs certification must refer to official degree of disability

- Diagnosis must be updated after three years if the student was a minor upon enrolment

You will receive an e-mail from our counselling service to set up an interview.
