Dyslexia is a discrepancy between written and verbal language abilities.
It might result in slow and inaccurate reading, untidy handwriting or
bizarre and inconsistent spelling in an otherwise intelligent person.
Hence, dyslexics may be slower at completing their academic
assignments than their non-dyslexic peers.
Some universities are better at supporting dyslexic students than others. Choosing the right university and course is a big decision. If you know you have Dyslexia it is advisable that you investigate the support facilities at the university of your choice, in order to make sure provisions can be put in place to support your Dyslexia.
