Dyslexia affects approximately ten per cent of the population but many learners with dyslexia lack information about the support available to them at college, university and when learning at work. Anecdotal evidence, however, suggests that appropriate and timely support can make a big difference to student success and retention. Knowing what to look for and what questions to ask as you visit a college open evening or attend a university interview can be very challenging; making a choice about whether to disclose your dyslexia to a prospective teacher, employer or trainer can also be fraught with difficulty. Dyslexia and Transition is an accessible resource for dyslexic adults making the transition from/to school/college/university/work-based learning, their teachers, learning support staff, careers advisors, and families. Drawing on case studies and interviews with learners, it provides clear, unbiased guidance and practical tools that will empower dyslexic learners (and their families and other support networks) to make positive decisions about future learning. The text provides information on how dyslexia support works in different sectors of education and what type of support is available to them at various points in their educational and working lives.
