Dyslexia: My Top 5 Back to School Learning Tools

Add colour to notes or essays everyday or when revising with different colour highlighters. 
Tip: choose a different colour highlighter for each of the different sets of information that you want to highlight.

Use coloured index or flash cards to summarise revision notes and test yourself. Using colours will help to store information in your visual memory. 
Tip: Get family or friends to test you on your notes in a quiz game.

Smart phones are great for helping you organise your revision schedule and exam timetable and stay on top of work.
Tip: Research shows that regular texting actually helps practice language skills.

Mini whiteboards are a cheap and fun way to record to-do lists or test yourself on what you have just learnt. 
Tip: Having two whiteboards means you could team up with revision buddies and have a competition on what each of you can remember.

Dictophones are great for recording lessons or lectures so that you never have to worry about missing out on crucial facts and figures when you feel bombarded with information overload.
Tip: During revision time listen to lectures, lessons, or revision notes when travelling gets boring.
