DiversaMENTE Disability and Specific Learning Disorders
IULM University promotes the logic of integration: a lot can be done to reduce the difficulties arising from disabilities and, above all, it is necessary to change attitudes and look at diversity with different eyes: that is why diversaMENTE was created.
One of IULM University's priorities is to ensure that all students have equal access to culture and education. The activities of the diversaMENTE - Disability and DSA office are dedicated to this aim. In accordance with the provisions of the relevant legislation (Law no. 17 of 28 January 1999 and Law no. 170 of 8 October 2010), the office's aim is to listen to the requests of the students concerned, collect their needs and then develop learning support strategies tailored to each case.
Thanks to a careful admission policy and the use of appropriate compensation mechanisms, the University guarantees that everyone has the opportunity to pursue their studies successfully.
SuperReading is a course that promotes the ability to read and understand text in a strategic way.
The method, developed in the United States and subsequently tested in Great Britain, has proved particularly effective for people with dyslexia.
The IULM University has translated and adapted the materials to the Italian context, starting an experiment that has involved 260 subjects, of which 143 are dyslexics and 117 are normolectors.
Given the excellent results obtained, IULM University has included SuperReading in its teaching offer, as a course of your choice that allows you to acquire 3 CFU.
