    The dsypraxia foundation has a lot of information that may help you.

    They say:
    Strategies that can be adopted by the college.
    • Special guidance with regard to both their capability of successfully completing the course of study and the suitability of a particular course to lead to further study and employment should be provided.
    • Formal tuition in the planning and organisation of work, both practical and academic. Give examples of essays, reports and projects. Break down processes to steps with an opportunity for feedback to check understanding.
    • Strategies to compensate for poor memory and organisational skills, e.g. the use of mnemonics, work timetables, flow charts and mind maps, hand-outs, word processors.
    • Training in relaxation techniques, assertiveness and confidence building.
    • Strategies should be in place to see that students can handle cooking and laboratory equipment safely. Items that can be secured should be – in order to stop spillage and breakage.
    They should be entitled to extra time for their course work and exams and have access to either a word processor or somebody to take their notes and write for them if necessary. If the student needs to apply for these concessions, they should seek a cognitive assessment from a clinical or educational psychologist.
    Dyspraxic students in higher education can also claim a Disabled Students Allowance – a lump sum which the student can pay for equipment or services e.g. to buy a tape recorder and/or for photocopying.

    The Dyspraxia Foundation can offer information and guidance but for information about what is available locally, search 'SENDIASS' and your county/city. This will give you the contact details for your local Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information, Advice and Support Service. They will have local knowledge and can support you in discussing with the college anything that they could do to make it easier for you when you are there.
