ABC radio: How well does our education system cope with students who have dyslexia?
ABC Radio National program, Life Matters speaks to Rauno Parrila, Professor of Education at Macquarie University, Christa Hill, a film student at Swinburne University, and Alex, who is studying human movement at Macquarie University, about how well the tertiary sector supports dyslexic students.
One in 10 Australians, possibly even one in five, may have dyslexia, but many remain unaware of their condition.
Sometimes those who think they may have dyslexia can avoid seeking help, because of the stigma associated with the condition.
But with more students with dyslexia studying at university, is our education system inclusive enough?
