What is it? 

Dyslexia is a severe and persistent reading and/or spelling problem. Characteristics are laborious reading and spelling, with insufficient automation of the process. Despite intensive training, the problems often persist. Dyslexia is not related to intelligence, but to the way the brain processes information. Persistent problems with reading and/or spelling can lead to reduced self-confidence or the development of fear of failure. 


What can you do yourself? 
  • If you would benefit from exam facilities (such as extra time), make an appointment with a student counselor. Make sure you have a statement of your diagnosis with you for inspection.
  • Keep practising reading and spelling.
