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

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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?
  2. Send them on a BATCO cadre.

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

  4. 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.
  5. Dyslexics of the world UNTIE
  6. 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
  7. 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!
