Dyslexic Students: Success Factors for Support in a Learning Environment

Björklund, Maria LU (2011) In Journal of Academic Librarianship 37(5). p.423-429
Abstract
This study examines possible success factors when developing technical solutions for dyslexic students. Findings in the literature, in a web survey answered by students and in the experiences from the development process at the Medical Faculty Library, Lund University, were used to find out potential success factors and difficulties. The literature found describes what dyslexia is, the situation for dyslexic students and available technical compensatory devices. One conclusion is that it is important to recognize the needs of individual students and choose flexible technical solutions.
