I’m a student at Napier University writing an MSc dissertation on teaching methods for dyslexics in the world of IT. I’m really interested in how people have found higher education compared to secondary school, and in particular dyslexics who are learning to program, especially in object-oriented languages. How well has it been taught to you? Is there enough support for you eg: extra time in exams, more accessible textbooks etc? Do you have any suggestions on how teaching might be improved in this area? Maybe a change in focus is needed?
I’d be really grateful if you would fill in my poll here; LJ comments are also welcome, and anonymous commenting is on.

I’d also appreciate any detailed experiences if you have time: please email them to me at ljs56 at cam dot ac dot uk.
Thank you so much!
