No Dyslexics in the TA, it seems, so no need to worry about them.

#1
Talking to a VERY highly qualified trainer recently, I learned that some Senior Officer denies ( and who are we to argue?) that there are any dyslexics in the TA. Naturally, this has a fortunate side effect in that there is no need to accomodate them in eg. basic training.

This would seem slightly odd to me as we recruit from the same gene pool...

But IF there was ever to be a dyslexic, how should they be supported during training and their later TA careers?

You should contact the National Dyslexics Association, they have some great guidance on their website about this sort of thing.

The Army, TA and Regular, has always supported dyslexia and illiteracy. Have you ever seen a form without a big scrawled cross at the positions where a signature is required.

my experience is that once a dyslexic is identified a reader is provided for tests etc and coughs or hurrumphs if the student is about to select the wrong answer

Well, if they're not allowed to be dyslexic, then they'll need to come up with another excuse for the mong spelling and the non-existent grammar!

My brother was dyslexic too. And an atheist. Turned out he was an insomniac too. Laid in bed all night wondering if there really was a Dog.

The norms are extra time in written tests.
Im actually dyslexic, - hence good spatial memory and a healthy irreverence for grammer.

Technically dyslexics have better spatial skills and better lateral thinking. - ergo actually if you can cope with bad spelling they may make better fighters.

I knew a dyslexic agnostic who didn't believe there was a dog.

BTW - who came up with the word 'dyslexic' to describe someone who has difficulty reading? He must have been a really evil bastard.
