Dyslexia is a recognised disability under the Equality Act 2010. Dyslexic candidates will normally require access arrangements in examinations. For example, it may be that they need more time to process information or express their thoughts in writing.
Access arrangements commonly involve having extra time in examinations. They can also include:
- A reader
- Oral language modifier
- A scribe
- Using a computer instead of handwriting
- Using assistive software
- Examination papers on coloured paper in a dyslexia-friendly font
- Supervised rest breaks
- Separate examination room
Our founder, Adriana, is qualified to recommend specific access arrangements for both internal and external examinations, so please feel free to contact us if you think we may be able to be of assistance.
