Did college a fair few years ago and the way the tutor structured each day was fantastic! (Nothing to do with myself having Dyspraxia, it was just the way they operated)

The way they worked was issuing a sheet that outlined the tasks for the day, so I was able to check my progress and my aims. Maybe this could work for you if your tutor gives you an outline for the day then you can see how well you're doing. If you're completing the tasks fairly quickly then it means the work could be increased. However if you're struggling to complete the tasks for the day then it'll be easy to identify and a solution could be found.

It's great that support has been offered to you from the start and so all I can suggest is keep calm, relax and enjoy yourself. Any problems don't be hesitant to ask them or even come back here and ask the question!

Apart from that I wish you the very best of luck!

Good luck with College. I went to a college for students with special needs for 5 years. It was good but they didn't have a very good understanding of Dyspraxia.

Hi There as a dyspraxic who is still at college. I have had to show them several details as a dyspraxic and it has helped a lot. In fact at college this year I had to retake english GCSE and we got to chose our own coursework project and I chose Dyspraxia
