The Association of Dyslexia Specialists in Higher Education
ADSHE focuses specifically on the issues affecting university students, including transition into HE and transition out into the workplace. ADSHE provides a focused network for dyslexia specialists in HE where the concerns are different to the wider educational environment where other groups (e.g. BDA or PATOSS) provide support.
ADSHE was formed in 2001 to share knowledge and good practice, especially to:
- work towards establishing parity of provision so that any dyslexic student will be assured of appropriate support throughout the HE sector.
- avoid unnecessary duplication of work.
- establish commonly accepted codes of good practice.
- encourage tutors to share experiences and overcome feelings of isolation.
- Over 600 members – all dyslexia tutors and specialists
- over 70 HEIs as Institutional Members.
- an annual Conference every June
- regional groups and meetings
- specialist training and CPD events
- a professional development day every September
- a members-only email forum
