- How can the language of research be a barrier?
- Dyslexic researchers
No two dyslexic researchers will demonstrate the same responses within a learning environment. The impact of research on three dyslexic researchers interviewed as part of the Premia research was very different.
For one researcher who reads quite slowly, the intensive and rapid reading presented a very real difficulty. For another planning and organising their research was the barrier.
For the third, it was the task of extensive writing which was the major challenge. This researcher was unable to write and their computer is their ‘wheelchair'. In order to use the speech activated software which enables the researcher to write, they have had to teach it the language of their research. To do that they have had to comprehend fully the meaning of that language.
