Do I have dyslexia? (online)

Wed 26 Jun 2024, 14:00 - 14:30 BST (GMT+1)

This 30 minute information session will explain what dyslexia (and other specific learning difficulties) are and how to access support. It's run over Zoom, so you'll need to book to receive the link.

We will explain:

  • What Dyslexia is
  • How a checklist might help you decide whether or not to have an assessment
  • How dyslexia can be diagnosed
  • How to get university support if you have dyslexia
  • How to get funding for support if you're a home or overseas student
  • Where to find free assistive technology software

Afterwards, you'll receive a post-workshop pack including:

  • Presentation slides
  • A link to the dyslexia checklist
  • A document that lists various free-to-access assistive software which includes a video demonstration explaining how to use them.

  • This is an information-sharing session and participation is not required. Cameras and microphones are switched off for this reason.
