ADSHE   (download free)  Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Specialist Support for Students with SpLDs in Higher Education and a Mind Map showing the type of  work undertaken by dyslexia specialists.   

ADSHE presentation at NADP conference – July 2009 “Ensuring quality in specialist support for students with SpLDs in HE”

ADSHE presentation at the  NADP Spring Conference ” Neurodiversity” 2010 on the topic of Dyslexia Specific study skills

Abstract “This session will provide an understanding of the ways in which a specialist tutor supports dyslexic students in Higher Education. It will demonstrate the importance of individual differences in the student’s underlying profile and how this impacts on the way they study and the way in which they should be supported. It will show how specialist support for students with SpLDs differs fundamentally from general study skill support.  It will also highlight the difficulties that have arisen because this difference has not been clearly recognised. Guidelines for best practice in specialist support and how these can be implemented will be proposed.”  Presentation

Academic Phrasebank from the University of Manchester is a general resource for academic writers. It aims to provide examples of some of the phraseological “nuts and bolts” of writing.  The phrases can be used simply to assist in thinking about writing – it is also possible to transfer some of the words used in particular phrases to others. The phrases are content neutral and generic in nature; in using them, therefore, you are not stealing other people’s ideas and this does not constitute plagiarism.

Users will need to be aware that Phrasebank is not discipline specific, and it does not claim to be comprehensive.
