    Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a good day. I'm hoping to get in touch with other dyslexic health care students. I will soon start a placement in the NHS. My previous one did not really allow adaptations. Has anyone used any of the followingwn lap top, dragon, text help, Dictaphone, large print? Or anything else which helps? Also are there any other forums for health care professionals or student with additional needs? Thanks a lot. Sunshine.

    Which course are you doing?
    I find that it really depends on. Most trusts are quite iffy about installing any of your own software on their computers. The use of dictaphones is pretty widespread anyway, so that is not an issue. *If you are still a student your Uni's disability department should be able to facilitate any negotiations with placements regarding reasonable adjustments. *

    I'm dyslexic. it does not really affect my reading so much (I can read quickly and have good comprehension) but writing. We have electronic records with build in spell checker. Any letters I dictate and the secretary types and formats them. So there are already things in place for everyone that make my life much easier.*
