Abstract

Dyslexia affects many students who are studying in the Higher Education sector. Since the introduction of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001, institutions are legally bound to offer support to students with declared disabilities. Disabled Student Allowances are used to provide technological support and specialist tuition to individuals.
This discussion highlights the problem that additional support, whilst very valuable, often leads to additional difficulties, particularly around time management.
