Do I have dyslexia?

Fri 28 Sep 2018, 11:00 - 12:30

This workshop will focus on students who think they might have dyslexia. We will introduce you to the strategies and support might be available at the University of Manchester and go over the process we follow to test for specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia. As part of the workshop, we will introduce you to text-to-speech and other assistive software and go over mind-mapping as a way to help with writing assignments. Please arrive at the session five minutes early to allow time to log onto the laptops.
