Dyslexia Awareness Week: 5-9 October

Birkbeck attracts students from many different educational backgrounds, many of whom may have dyslexia. Some of these people will not have a diagnosis and may be finding study more challenging than necessary.

What can I go to?

  • We have organised a series of dyslexia screening workshops. Do you think you might have dyslexia? Come to a drop-in and receive a free screening. No booking necessary, just come along. Taking place Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October, 16.00-17.00,┬áin MAL 457. Please bring earphones.
