Aims and Objectives

Module 2

An introduction to students with dyslexia in higher education


Learning Outcomes
At the end of this module you will be able to…

  • Recognise current definitions of dyslexia

  • Distinguish between common misconceptions and facts about dyslexia

  • Recognise some of the difficulties that students with dyslexia face

  • Know some of the strategies you can use to assist dyslexic students

  • Distinguish between the difference and deficit models of dyslexia

During recent years, the issues of dyslexia and the support of students with dyslexia in higher education have become topics for debate. The number of dyslexic students entering higher education is increasing every year at a considerable rate and it is likely that most academic staff have had experience (if perhaps unbeknown) of teaching a dyslexic student.
The use of dyslexia as a term to describe students with literacy difficulties has become widespread amongst the academic community and the general public alike. However, there are many different perceptions and misconceptions about what it is, how it manifests itself and how to deal with it.
This module therefore begins with a chance for you to test some of these popular beliefs. You will be presented with four statements about students with dyslexia in higher education. You are asked to choose whether you think they are true or false. You will then be presented with a discussion about each point.
