Why Study Dyslexia?

Research suggests that dyslexia may affect as many as one in every 10 people in the UK.  However, many teachers and teaching assistants lack the basic knowledge and understanding of dyslexia needed to provide pupils with invaluable support.  Learning how to recognise the signs of dyslexia and provide additional support for those affected can make a real difference in young learners’ lives.  Pupils who struggle with dyslexia often experience depression, anxiety and stress in the classroom.  All of which can take a toll on their wellbeing and the quality of their educational experience.  This is where the specialist knowledge and skills needed to support pupils with dyslexia can make all the difference.  If looking to play an even more positive role in the lives of the pupils you work with, this free dyslexia training course comes highly recommended.

*course is 100% free of charge to take online - certificate available upon completion (optional) for a small fee.

By the end of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Understand the difficulties encountered by children with dyslexia
  • Discuss the various signs and symptoms of dyslexia in children
