    I too have dyslexia and dyspraxia.
    I was at university until end 2018 ( I am disabled now).
    You would think the Jobcentre would be trying to help you. 
    It can be frustrating.
    I am not sure what to say to you.
    Do you have a work coach?
    Is there someone who knows you well that can explain to them?
    Maybe the people that are dealing with you do no know about struggles that people with learning difficulties have.
    They need to look at the 2010 equality act. 
    I really hope you get the support you need.
    I use assistive technology.
    I miss university they were fantastic.

    Neurimum4 I have a job coach but don't think have a good amount of knowledge about my own disabilities. Most people know me are not available to talk my own  behalf.
