I think that is it Tessa - educational professionals should have a basic understanding that dyslexia presents in many ways and then look at the specific ways in which a student reacts to information and what problems are presenting. Teachers can then decide how best to help and what access arrangements can be offered. This should be then be shared with all those working with the student.

It is quite common to meet students who exhibit processing and memory problems and are amazed when dyslexia is suggested as they 'can read and spell'.
