Dyslexia friendly accreditation for British University

Birmingham City University : 22 October, 2013  (Company News)
The British Dyslexia Association has accredited Birmingham City University Faculty of Health as Dyslexia Friendly
Dyslexia friendly accreditation for British University


Birmingham City University’s Faculty of Health has become the first UK University to be awarded the highly prestigious Dyslexia Friendly accreditation by the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).

 

The BDA Quality Mark is an external sign of approval of a dyslexia friendly organisation and is issued to those organisations who have met, and continue to meet the quality standards as set out by the BDA.

 

The University’s Faculty of Health – located in Edgbaston, Birmingham – is one of the UK’s largest health faculties with more than 7,000 students enrolled on healthcare courses, from nursing and midwifery, to speech and language therapy and paramedic science.

 

The BDA commended the Faculty on its learning and teaching resources, as well as its supporting culture and environment.

 

Student Nurse Amy Richardson said: “The support I have received for my dyslexia has changed things for me so much.  The support, advice and guidance from the Disability Tutor has been invaluable.  I am lucky to be studying at such a supportive University, and I’m glad I made the right choice with BCU.”



Faculty of Health Disability Tutor, Nick Gee, who led the project said: “I am delighted that we have been recognised for the support and resources we provide for all our students, including dyslexic students.  I would like to thank everybody who was involved with the steering group, and took part in the stakeholder consultations.”



The Faculty’s accredited status cements their position at the forefront of providing excellent support for students, and already there are other projects in the pipeline to follow on from this success.
