Effective Accommodations

Students and Adults with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) such as Dyslexia should be afforded certain accommodations at school, University and TAFE. Such accommodations will allow the student with a SLD to demonstrate their abilities more accurately, and will allow more equal opportunities in comparison to other students. Accommodations need not compromise academic standards.

Information on specific education based accommodations can be found on the links to the right.

Many of the recommendations made for assisting older students and adults were accessed through the Opening All Options Website. This website is a useful reference not only for educators but also students.
