Dyslexia: NEED HELP FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENT WITH DYSLEXIA

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Wendy:  What advice would you give to an international student studying in the US, who has dyslexia and possibly other learning disabilities? The student has these disabilities documented in Taiwan, but at least one university is demanding a US-based documentation, which is several thousand dollars. Any way around this? Any universities you’d recommend which are particularly progressive when it comes to these sorts of issues?

Some diagnoses can be made by a primary care doctor. If the student is under 21, you might want to start with a good pediatrician. The right sort of family practice doctor could also do a good job with this. Pick a large practice, get an initial appointment with whoever has an appointment available quickly, in order to get established as a patient there, and then ask nurses, doctors and receptionists at that practice who has the most experience working with young people with learning disabilities. Bring a copy of the Taiwan documentation to the appointments.
