Apparently recent decisions have been made to deny some students with Specific Learning Disorders, such as Dyslexia, access to Disability Provisions in the HSC. These students are reportedly performing below average for their age in regards to reading rate but have not been given extra time in exams. According to some reports this is because the students have adequate ability to "access the exams" because the tests are designed to be able to be completed by students with a reading age of 13 years old. This means that an 18 year old student may have a reading rate of a 13 year old, which classes them as having the ability to "access the exam". Yet the decision to make an 18 year old with a 13 year old reading rate sit the same exam, in the same time, as an 18 year old with an 18 year old reading rate seems unfair. While the student may be able to “access the exam” it seems comparable to expecting an individual in a wheelchair to race up a hill against someone who is not in a wheelchair. The argument could still be made that the individual can make it up the hill but not at the same rate… An unfair expectation! It would be good to get clarification from the government regarding these decisions if these details are accurate. #Dyslexia #HSC #LearningDisorders
