While many universities have their own guidelines for marking the work of dyslexic students, I have been sent on a dyslexia forum the link below which is very comprehensive and goes some way to explain the difficulties faced by students with dyslexia.
Young people with dyslexia should not be put off the idea of going to university as there is a considerable amount of help for them via the Disabled Students' Allowance. Once the student is diagnosed and his or her needs assessed, they will, if they qualify, be awarded specialist tuition and a wide range of assistive software which will help them to complete essays, dissertations and other projects and complete their course.
The marking guidelines below are typical of those present in other universities.
