Best of all, is that you can access this information any time you need it.

Students with disabilities or specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia may need additional study skills tuition due to the disadvantage of their disability or learning difficulty in a new learning situation. For example a student with dyslexia may need additional tuition in learning how to lay out an academic paper and may benefit from additional hours with a study skills tutor. If you have a disability or a specific learning difficulty you should approach the disability support services in the college or the access office for advice.
