FAQ 705
I have dyslexia. Is that being taken into account when my work is marked?

You will need to have registered with the Additional Learning Support  Team and undertaken an Educational Psychology assessment since enrolling at BU.

If the result of the assessment indicates that you have dyslexia, you will be issued with ALS stickers. These should be used when submitting your hard copy assignments.  Your assignments will then be marked using Dyslexia Marking Guidelines.

For electronic submissions, please state in the header of the document that you submit 'ALS Marking Guidelines'. Your marker will then know that you have ALS and will be following Dyslexia Marking Guidelines.

For more information you can talk to the ALS team.
