Practical Strategies for Study Skills

Individuals are often asked to do independent study, but are rarely taught the skills to do so effectively. Dyslexic individuals, particularly, have often spent so much time struggling with literacy difficulties that they have not had the opportunity to develop good study skills. This module examines a range of approaches to study in order to support dyslexic individuals with developing and implementing effective study skills.
