Isaac is a third-year‘ economics and politics’ undergraduate at Oxford University.


Diagnosed with ADHD by a GP when he first attended university, Isaac discovered how he could get help with his studies through the Disabled Students’ Allowance.


What happens when you are a student with ADHD who needs to read through thousands of pages of text to weekly, in order to keep up with the demands of an undergraduate course in Economics and Politics? Three things happen actually:


  1. The student applies to the Disabled Students’ Allowance scheme for support.

  2. The student finds assistive technology that work for them and their specific needs.

  3. The student develops a strategy to power through the learning material, learn the content, and feel confident about their course.


In the video below, Oxford undergraduate, Isaac shares insights on how he has developed learning strategies that are helping him with studying using text-to-speech technology.


Isaac’s technology that works for him is ReadSpeaker TextAid and he uses the settings of the software to help him confidently comprehend reading materials as well as speed up his productivity.
