    Dyslexia is a term used to describe a learning disability where a student has difficulty reading and effect their ability to code information as well as short-term memory loss. It is known to effect between five to ten percent of the student population.
    The results indicated that students without dyslexia obtained significantly higher scores
    than students with dyslexia in their reported use of selecting main ideas and test taking strategies. Students with dyslexia
    reported significantly greater use of study aids and time management strategies in comparison to students without dyslexia.
    Moreover, university students with dyslexia were significantly more likely to report a deep approach to learning in com-
    parison to university students without dyslexia. Reading ability correlated positively with selecting main ideas and test tak-
    ing strategies and negatively with use of study aids. The authors interpret the learning strategy results as consequences of
    and compensations for the difficulties that students with dyslexia have in word reading.
