Students are taught by a range of methods across the disciplines and some of those methods can tap into typical characteristics of dyslexia.

Here you will find suggestions for making some teaching methods more accessible for dyslexic students. For example, you might encourage dyslexic students to choose projects and dissertations that suit their ways of learning.

You may find some ideas for increasing the accessibility of your teaching in your discipline area.
