Special Needs Teachers

Lead paragraph

Haaga-Helia supports and assists students with dyslexia, or other related learning difficulties by providing special arrangements and special needs services that facilitate studies at the UAS.

Students diagnosed with dyslexia are advised to contact Haaga-Helia’s special needs teachers. On the grounds of the evidenced diagnosis, students will be given an individualized report which indicates the special needs arrangements learners are entitled to during their studies at Haaga-Helia.

All students who suspect an unidentified learning difficulty are also recommended to set an appointment with one of the special needs teachers.
