Practical support for young people with dyslexia aged 14+ making the transition to higher education or the workplace

Targeted at fourteen to seventeen year olds with dyslexia, this book answers common questions and concerns about moving from school to college, university, or the workplace. This accessible guide gives an overview of the various types of support available, eases anxiety over the transition, and empowers young people to make informed decisions about their next step.

Essential information for young people aged 14+ with dyslexia and the adults supporting them their next steps.

Accessible, dyslexia friendly format.

Recent policy changes have drastically expanded the rights and entitlements of further education students with dyslexia, but students and parents are often unaware of the support available.

Ensures that teenagers with dyslexia are aware of their rights and entitlements e.g. special exam arrangements to free e-textbooks and assistive technology.

Ann-Marie McNicholas has twenty years' experience working as a learning support advisor and specialist teacher in a further education college. She advises parents, professionals and prospective students on preparing for the transition to further education.

An essential read for young people with dyslexia about to embark on their post-16 education. Armed with this information young people and their families will have the confidence to get the best out of the services available. Everyone who provides information, advice and careers guidance should add this informative and easy to read book to their tool kit. - Susan Dwyer, Support Manager, Grade 1 Ofsted Rated College of Further Education

This book will fill a gap in the market for both students and their parents. It explains clearly what support is available in further education. It provides good, concise information. I especially liked the revision template and the information in the appendices on how to use the technologies that students often have on their phones. I think the book will also be useful to teachers, careers advisors and other professionals. It is well written and easy to read and understand. - Carol Pilkington, Teacher, Shaftesbury High School
