    Hello everyone…I’m currently writing a final paper for my SLI course (which is due in at the end of this month) and my topic is ‘Dyslexia within Interpreting’. I have been luck enough to speak with one or two RSLI’s who have kindly given me their perspective on how it effects them within their role. I would still like to gather more data, so if anyone is prepared to share also, or provide me with any kind of related information then I would be eternally grateful! Ideally I would like to get a rough idea of how many Interpreters have Dyslexia but I feel this will be almost impossible as there doesn’t seem to be an actual register anywhere and not surprising as it’s sensitive and personal data, but an interesting line for me Essay. As I said, anything would be happily received and thank you in advance. Jenny

    • Hi Jennifer, If you contact Minna Moffatt-Feldman at Sign How in Manchester, she has conducted research on Learning BSL and dyslexia – might be something useful for you?

      • Thank you so much Njal – I’ve been in touch with Minna and it’s just the sort of thing I’m looking for so it’s been a great help. Very interesting too! Thanks again for the tip.
