Dyslexia affects approximately ten per cent of the population but
many learners with dyslexia lack information about the support
available to them at college, university and when learning at work.
Anecdotal evidence, however, suggests that appropriate and timely
support can make a big difference to student success and retention.
Knowing what to look for and what questions to ask as you visit a
college open evening or attend a university interview can be very
challenging; making a choice about whether to disclose your
dyslexia to a prospective teacher, employer or trainer can also be
fraught with difficulty. Dyslexia and Transition is an accessible
resource for dyslexic adults making the transition from/to
school/college/university/work-based learning, their teachers,
learning support staff, careers advisors, and families. Drawing on
case studies and interviews with learners, it provides clear,
unbiased guidance and practical tools that will empower dyslexic
learners (and their families and other support networks) to make
positive decisions about future learning. The text provides
information on how dyslexia support works in different sectors of
education and what type of support is available to them at various
points in their educational and working lives.
