It contains •  Information on applications and admissions to colleges and universities  •  Seeking information, support and funding about dyslexia from institutions  •  How to apply for funding from the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)  •  Study skills relevant to dyslexia and to course requirements  •  Examples of how to maximise the strengths and abilities associated with dyslexia  •  Ideas about the use of computers, software and other technologies relevant to dyslexia  •  How to cope with revision and exams  •  Personal case studies written by undergraduate and postgraduate students with dyslexia.Not only invaluable for dyslexic students, but valuable reading for Heads of Departments, admissions tutors, Equal Opportunities co-ordinators, lectures, personal tutors and librarians.
