    Dyslexie Font on ADCET

    October is Dyslexia Awareness month and over the next four weeks ADCET will be using the Dyslexie font as the default font on the website. From November onwards, website visitors will then have the option to choose between the normal font and the Dyslexie font - font options can be found in the top right-hand side of the website.

    Christian Boer, the creator of Dyslexie font, has been affected by dyslexia for as long as he can remember. His experience inspired him to design a solution to improve readability for people with dyslexia. Christian combined his graphic design skills with his dyslexia, abandoning traditional typeface design rules, favouring instead the user needs of a dyslexic person. The result? The Dyslexie font.

    Experience of nursing students with dyslexia on clinical placement - UK

    A review of the literature was conducted to explore the experience of nursing students with dyslexia while on clinical placement. Three main themes emerged, including risk to patient safety, disclosure of dyslexia and support for nursing students. The literature review highlights the lack of dyslexia awareness and understanding in the research and at the trusts at which nursing students are placed, and calls for further research in this area. (McPheat, C. (2014).  Nursing Standard. 28(41): 44-49 - 2014).
