Logopedics assessment #

Borrow audiobooks #
Audio textbooks can be a good alternative if your learning disability makes reading difficult. Borrow subject literature as audiobooks (in Norwegian).
The University Library helps you convert your text books into audio at scanning stations at the Dragvoll Library and the Technology Library
Borrow other aids #
NTNU has a number of different aids and tools you can borrow during your studies (in Norwegian).
Help taking notes #
If you think it could be helpful for you to have someone taking notes for you, book a meeting with us so we can consider the matter. The note-takers are other students who are hired to do the job for you.
Lecture notes in advance #
Ask your professor if it's possible to receive lecture notes beforehand, so that you can be prepared, and be able to learn more efficiently.
Inform your academic contacts? #
It might be a good idea to let your academic contacts know about your dyslexia diagnosis. The Disability Office can assist you in informing professors and other academic contacts about your special needs.
