Dyslexia resources

Dyslexia is a complex condition causing an individual to process information differently particularly around reading, writing and numbers. 

Whilst this can lead to difficulty with literacy, dyslexic people often see things differently and have strong problem solving and creative skills. 

On 12 July 2016, the disabled member’s network hosted a study day on 'Understanding Reasonable Adjustments for Dyslexia'.

The purpose of the study day was to take a positive and proactive look at CSP members and their experiences of implementing reasonable adjustments for dyslexia in the workplace and at university.

Our study day speakers

The speakers on the day were filmed and can be seen here:

Theresa Awolesi, a recent physiotherapy graduate from the University of Nottingham shares her experience of having dyslexia at university and on clinical placement.
