This eLearning module examines the unique traits that have helped some of the world's best-known dyslexic individuals rise to success. From developing determination and self-esteem, to seeking the right kind of help and support, this module identifies how all dyslexic individuals can develop and use these traits to unlock their own potential. This programme supplements “Self Fulfilment with Dyslexia: A Blueprint to Success”, by the BDA Vice President, Margaret Malpas MBE, and includes activities, case studies, and videos to provide further opportunities for learning.
This eLearning module is designed to assist individuals with developing an understanding of Access Arrangements for examinations. It provides an overview of what access arrangements are, how these apply to those with dyslexia, and what types of support are available. Please note, regulations concerning access arrangements change on a regular basis and so this module should not be taken to be a definitive guide.
