Dyslexia and my DSA

When I got home today, finally I had a letter from SAAS about my DSA, which has been awarded! (Yippee!)

I had a long chat with two girls of the course about whether they should contact the disabilities office about dyslexia, one had already had a DSA for their undergrad and the second didn’t know if she wanted to be tested or not because of the stigma. I encouraged both of them to go ahead, with the recent disabilities act, I think it is very unlikely that either of them will have any problems.

Last Thursday I met with a 3rd year from the OT undergrad who had dyslexia. We had a really good chat about placement and the implications of having dyslexia and working in OT. I feel really postitive.
