There’s no ‘right way’ to learn
We all have our own way of learning although it can sometimes seem that society has decided there is only one way to learn, which doesn’t fit us all. So, if you have learning differences then there are adjustments that could help you get the most from your every day and make life that little bit easier.
Perhaps you’re an engineering student with dyslexia, or the parent of a dyslexic child. If that’s the case and you or your partner is an engineer, we may be able to cover the cost of any special equipment or adjustments you or your child need. This includes educational tools developed to help dyslexic adults and children.
We could also be able to cover the cost of assistive technology that could make a real different to daily life if you’re coping with another diagnosis. If that’s your situation our grants could help fund audio and computer equipment for people with sight loss.
There are online resources by members of the engineering community who are living with dyslexia. Because sometimes there’s nothing quite like hearing from someone who really understands what you’re dealing with, someone who’s been there.
We’ve also made sure this website is designed in a way that makes it accessible to members of the engineering community who are blind or experiencing vision loss. Whatever our differences, they’re part of what makes us who we are. So, don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how we could help you.
