We will send you the Zoom link for the workshop a day before the workshop is to take place, booking onto this workshop is essential.

This workshop will focus on students who think they might have dyslexia or another specific learning difficulty. We will introduce you to strategies and support 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 at least five minutes early to allow time to log onto the laptop you will be using.

Please don't book onto this workshop If you have English as an Additional Language and are studying on a course with the University Language Centre to improve your English skills before starting on another programme of study. Instead, please call the Disability Advisory and Support Service on 0161 275 7512 and book a Quick Query appointment with an advisor.
