If you are dyslexic, you have the opportunity to receive support to help your reading – and writing difficulties. To receive this support, you need to have documentation about your dyslexia. The documentation would usually be your result from a dyslexia test. If you suspect that you might be dyslexic, we can help you with getting a test done. If you have already been tested, but you are not sure about your test results, you are welcome to contact us to hear more about your options for educational support.
If you are a new student at Aarhus University, you need to contact us, even if you have received support to help your reading – and writing difficulties during your prior education.
Dyslexia is a specific form of reading – and writing difficulties, which is does not relate to intelligence or other learning conditions. Dyslexia hits all types of people, independent of age, motivation, and educational level. Dyslexia stems from a difference in brain areas associated with processing the sounds of language and can be hereditary.
Many students do not figure out they are dyslexic until they start at the university.
If you have been tested for dyslexia and your results lies in the “yellow category” you might have been told that you did not have the right to apply for educational support during your secondary education. The rules at the university is a bit different, and you do have the opportunity to apply for support with a yellow test result. Please contact us to hear more about your options for educational support, and to apply for the support.
