Here at Helen Arkell, we are very keen to support and promote research into dyslexia and SpLDs. We ask you to take part in research if you can and, where possible, we will share the results of research with you.

I am looking for students with dyslexia who would like to be involved in the design process of my doctoral research. My research will investigate the emotional impact of academic studies on students with dyslexia. 

I would like your help thinking about the situations at uni that make students feel anxious.

If you are interested or know anyone that might be please let me know by contacting me via can arrange to meet online via MS Teams for around an hour.

Many thanks,

Research into students with dyslexia

Do you have 20 minutes to help Anna, an MSc Psychology student from Dundee University?

Anna is examining how students with dyslexia have learnt to compensate for the associated reading difficulties in order to cope with the reading demand required to complete a degree. She needs students who are currently at university to complete this study – both with and without dyslexia.

The study is anonymous and consists of a 20-minute session of three online tasks. There is more information on the link below and you are not obliged to take part or complete the tasks once you click the link.

Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity and the University of Dundee take your confidentiality seriously. By clicking on this link, you may be tracked by the provider of the current web page. In order to prevent this, we advise that you cut and paste the URL into a new browser tab or page.

Please pass this on if you know of anyone who could take part.
