Dyslexia in education

Impact of dyslexia in education

Dyslexia can have both positive and negative effects on people’s performance in higher and further education. Developing your learning and study skills can reduce dyslexia related problems significantly.

Students may experience difficulties with reading skills, writing skills, organising verbal information, approaching exams, time management, adapting to change and a lack of self-confidence.

Experience with dyslexia in education

We have an extensive record of training and consultancy in education, and have worked with a variety of universities and colleges including Birkbeck, the Central School of Ballet, Central School of Speech and Drama, Greenwich University, the Institute of Education, King’s College London, Morley college, the Open University, Oxford Brookes, Salomon’s (part of Canterbury Christchurch University), SOAS, South Bank University, Southwark College, St Martin’s, UCL, Queen Mary University, University of Buckingham, University of Cambridge, University of Kent, University of Luton, University of Oxford and the University of Westminster.


The skills and abilities of dyslexic students are usually greater than their difficulties, and their problems often mask their abilities. Dyslexic students are often intuitive, with good interpersonal skills; innovative and lateral thinkers; creative and imaginative; resourceful; and often determined to succeed and hardworking.

Briefings and courses for students and staff in further and higher education

The length and structure of our briefings and courses are flexible, and adapted to meet the needs and priorities of each student or establishment. They may address:

• self-understanding
• reading and writing skills
• question analysis and critical thinking
• revision and examinations
• dyslexia awareness
• the transition to the workplace.

Please call us on 0207 388 8744 to discuss which service would be most appropriate and beneficial for you, or for an education information pack.

Funding dyslexia training and coaching

Some universities provide financial assistance for having a dyslexia assessment. Students can apply for a Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA) to fund dyslexia training and coaching.
