Are Dyslexic Accommodations Fair? Yes, Here’s Why
Studies have shown that some consider accommodations unfair, especially when the individual performs well. Still, there are many reasons why accommodations make sense for dyslexics. In this video, I discuss 3 of the main reasons and include a test simulation. For dyslexics with ADHD, or other individuals with learning differences, accommodations create the opportunity for success, whereas in many cases not receiving them can enforce failure.
Here’s some of the literature I consulted to create this video:
- Paetzold, Ramona L., et al. “Perceptions of people with disabilities: When is accommodation fair?.” Basic and Applied Social Psychology 30.1 (2008): 27-35.
