Ten percent (10%) of the population are dyslexic with 4% severely affected. Dyslexia is identified as a disability as defined in the Equality Act 2010.

Without a proper diagnosis, everyday problems in the classroom or the workplace can be misunderstood. Students at school and university can be left to struggle, unable to keep up with their peers. The workplace can quickly become a difficult, unmanageable ordeal and even the most seemingly simple tasks like reading a bus timetable or filling in forms can seem complex and un-achievable.

If an individual struggles with any of the following, Dyslexia could be the reason:

- Reading problems
- Spelling difficulties
- Memory difficulties
- Concentration issues
- Number confusion
- Writing problems

With a diagnosis, dyslexic people can receive the correct support at school, university and in the workplace. This means they can be given reasonable adjustments to ensure they are not disadvantaged.

- Reasonable adjustments can include:
- Extra time in exams
- Assistive software (to help with reading from a screen)
- Voice recognition software (to help with writing)
- One-to-one support to help with reading and writing tasks (Education and workplace)

The only way reasonable adjustments can be made is through the evidence of an assessment report.
