Show Notes:

In Episode 64, Carolina interviews Emma Noble who is a final year Psychology student at the University of Glasgow. Emma gives an overview of her final year dissertation project where she explored the lived experience of Higher Education students with a formal dyslexia diagnosis. She goes into detail what the ‘dyslexia label’ means to them, how it is linked to their identity as a person, and what it would mean to lose the label. Emma provides tips for teachers and students, too. Enjoy.
