Welcome to Chapter 1. In this section, we will introduce you to David and Claire, both of whom have dyslexia. David works as a Software Engineer and Claire runs her own catering company.

David didn't complete his university degree, but he has still managed to build a successful career in Computing. Now his manager wants him to write a training manual, and he's struggling to deliver. Claire wants to expand her business. That means securing a bank loan and, to get that, she will have to write a business plan.

As these stories unfold, you will see how David and Claire cope with their challenges and you will discover the many different strategies that they use to overcome their difficulties with writing.

This module is structured around the Writing Plan - a step-by-step guide, developed by our expert team, which will help you on your journey to becoming a better writer.
