Durham University and Dyslexia
Prospective students visiting the website of Durham University are at present faced by a series of articles about the research of Professor Julian Elliot, calling for an end to the use of the word 'dyslexia'.
I have written to the university asking if they have considered the potential for this front page to have an unintentional effect discouraging dyslexic students from applying to study there.
