Chapter 1: Introduction

Welcome to Chapter 1. In this section, we will introduce you to Ayesha and Rob, both of whom have dyslexia. Ayesha also has dyspraxia. Ayesha is studying for a Human Resources qualification, and Rob manages contract bids for a construction company.

Ayesha finds that reading for her assignments is much harder than she expected. Her first mark is a borderline fail. Rob is bidding for a contract to build a new shopping centre. The specification document is huge and very complicated.

Over the course of this module, you will see how Ayesha and Rob cope with their challenges, and you will see the many different strategies that they use to improve their reading. These techniques will improve your confidence about reading, and your enjoyment too.
