Bengaluru: This year’s PUC results are out and out of 597 dyslexic students who appeared for the exam, 324 cleared it, taking the pass percentage to 54.27%, slightly higher than 52% in 2017. However, activists observed that more needs to be done for students with special needs.

"If a little more support is given to these students by helping them with spellings, as they spell in a phonetic way, these students can go a long way and the percentage can surely increase," said Anita Yadalam, special educator at Brindavan Education Centre. "There are a bunch of highly intelligent students looking for support, but are not getting it,” she added.

 

Experts pointed out that though dyslexia friendly moves have been initiated at school level by Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and SSLC, nothing has been done for these students once they reach college.

"PUC accepts language exemption, but a little more help is required as in ICSE or CBSE. Once these dyslexic students come to college the help is stopped and hence it affects their motivation as well,” Anita stressed.
