Dear Colleagues,

I have an undergraduate student in my class this semester with dyslexia. He
is a bright and motivated young adult (early 20šs) whom my School (and I)
strongly believe will be an excellent business graduate. The student in
question was diagnosed with dyslexia in his early teens and successfully
completed high school/matriculated into University, albeit some years behind
his peers. 

The student has just commenced the business program (first year, first
semester) and, while he is currently receiving university-provided
educational support for completing course-based assignments, he will be
needing additional support during exams (for handwriting exam answers). The
head of school is currently thinking through appropriate solutions, and we
would be grateful for advice and suggestions from those in the AIB community
re how to successfully address the particular learning needs of the student
in question. Suggestions as to websites, books, reading material, practical
support and other approaches would be most welcome.

Our deepest thanks in advance for your help,
Yvonne McNulty
